Kaija Barron

Statement

My work often revolves around the themes relating to my Finnish Heritage and my love for urban myths and legends. I am largely inspired by printmakers and their way of working, which I think gives my work a printerly and layered quality. Throughout my degree, I have discovered a love for making work related to the narrative, but I have recently begun to branch out into areas of current affairs and editorial illustration.
