"I painted this piece in memory of my son's death. After his passing, the family went to his home to go through his things. What used to be a happy place for get togethers and laughter now felt haunted. This abstract piece was what the house looked like with my new perspective."


Juhani was born in Finland and emigrated to Australia aged nine on a three-week long ship journey. Juhani used to paint when he was young, but art dropped away when he had a family.

He picked up the brushes again later in life after retirement, when he found more free time on his hands. Juhani has fallen in love with painting again and creates in many different styles.

Juhani's family has been impacted by mental health with the suicide of his oldest son ten years ago. His son experienced anxiety his whole life and is an inspiration for him to continue painting.
