Whimsical artworks delight

23 February, 2012

Marja-Leena Montonen is new to the Canberra region, and new to our markets, but she’s definitely not new to creating amazing artwork.

Taking up painting at the mere age of nine months old, she’s always loved art. And it shows in her range of original, vibrant works which impart a sense of fun and whimsy. Born in Sweden of Finnish parents, Marja-Leena moved to Australia with her Australian born husband in 2008.

Having only recently located to Yass, she’s had many different jobs over the years but, having always kept her hand in her art, is turning to it full time.  In the past her pictures have been used for puzzles in the USA, mobile phone accessories in Japan, cards for Hallmark and Christmas cards for UNICEF, and she’s also received many other accolades.

We’re delighted that Marja-Leena has just started at the markets with her range proving popular amongst market-goers who have been admiring her original paintings, canvas prints, posters, hand painted bags and very popular greeting cards.
