Painting watercolours is my passion. Painting them challenges me over and over again. I love the lightness, translucency and versatility of watercolours. My aim is to create art on my own way but with a modern twist. I express my feelings and experiences through painting. For my abstracts I get my inspiration from nature. Elements of nature – air, light, wind or snow – have an essential role in my paintings.

”Sensitive female artists have often a story that is forcing you to think – this goes especially with sensitive watercolor artists. You have to seize the moment when working with watercolors. Suddenly the lines have changed. Truthness, strengthness and self-confidence are present all at once – at the same time you can also indulge the possibilities.

You can see all this strength and sensitiveness in the artwork of Tuula Kallas. Her artwork proposes to stop for a little while. The depth of her artworks opens new dimensions and leads the spectator to an almost meditative reality, where thinking is lead by this line drawn to water. The artwork of this artist is very calming, and her paintings fascinate with their authenticity.”
