Our artist was hatched in Jyväskylä in 1986. She was a very daring kid, and loved to climb trees. Couldn´t focus at school that much. Detention became almost daily in her first two years at school, and Terhi used to run through the forests to her home to cut time.
She graduated into a hairdresser in 2007, and moved to Tampere to join her then-new partner in life. In 15 years of time, she has created a home, a family and a nice quiet life to Tampere.
In the year 2020 when Terhi was at home with her toddler, one night when the little one was sleeping, she painted a cute group of penguins to a canvas board. They went with many other animal portraits to a local kid´s flea market, and quickly found their new homes.
Pikku Pingviinit est 2020
So in the year 2020 Pikku Pingviinit, a small business was born. Also an exitement to paint customer´s memories, feelings and happy accidents through our penguins.
Even though she absolutely loves painting penguins, she also works full-time and is going to start studying marketing in May of 2023. Her biggest dream is for the audience to find these special birds and their adventures!
The values of Pikku Pingviinit
Values that we cherich, are; Quality, working together, humour, love, and respecting the ones that have paved the path before us.
Pikku Pingviinit are open for many kind of projects. We also have some things that don´t belong in our penguins world. We want to respect others and keep Pikku Pingviinit neutral to certain things. We have plenty going on in here anyway!
Pikku Pingviinit do not touch certain themes in our pictures: politics, religions, world events, and other cultures than ours as Finnish creations.
