ABOUT MIRKA HOKKANEN

  • I’m a printmaker by trade and love animals and nature. I can work in both traditional media, watercolor, gouache and drawing and digital media. I have my MFA with a concentration in Printmaking and can carve linocuts and wood engravings for a traditional look with contrast. 

    I’m originally from Finland and currently live in Hawaii, with my family. I work as a freelance artist, teacher, designer and illustrator.  

ARTIST STATEMENT

  • I love to work with animal characters, and like to add a hint of humor when ever possible. My style is representational, and fairly natural, and can work in traditional media as well as digitally. I also work in print media, like wood engraving and linocuts.
