Linnea Mettälä works with words. Writing is one of the best things in Linnea’s opinion, and she could do it every day. Sometimes Linnea wouldn’t want to stop at all.
Linnea writes right words and her own words. Written words are given more value than usual because Linnea doesn’t speak. Some of the words are repeated in every works, while some change every time. Most works start with words book, teddy bear, clock and rooster.
Linnea works with different pens and brushes and she writes on different materials. In addition to paper and cardboard, Linnea has also written for example on leather jackets and canvas. The more space to write, the better!
Linnea’s works have been included in e.g. At the Outsider Art Festival and several exhibitions. Her works can be found in the collections of both private and associations.
