Taija Lumitähti Portfolio Art & Design
Hi, my name is Taija. I was born in 1989 and I live in Tampere, Finland, with two cats and my husband.
For painting I mainly use Paint Tool Sai or Clip Studio Paint.
Other programs I've used include Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesing, After Effects, Corel Draw, Inkscape, 3ds Max and Blender.
Besides drawing and painting I also love handcrafts such as sewing and knitting, video games and nordic folklore.
