Emily Rose Laakso is a British artist who has lived in Finland for the past 7 years. Laakso is a second-year Media and Art student in TAMK Interactive Media study path. Laakso also has a degree in Modern Liberal Arts from the University of Winchester.
She works in a range of mediums and styles, but usually digitally; graphic design and animation are her focus, though in her free time she paints and draws, and sometimes makes illustrations. Laakso likes abstraction but also drawing from life. She is inspired by Minimalism, Brutalism, and the natural world. She says it is hard to pinpoint themes in her work as it is usually client-based, but in her personal work she often explores identity, place and belonging.
