Taking inspiration from the wildlife, Jonna Hyttinen, the artist better known as Scandygirl, shows animals how we all should see them. She uses a decorative style and dynamic compositions to create powerful, magical creatures that works as a tribute to nature, wild animals, and endangered species.

She had a few-years break, but in 2014 when she was going through some rough times she found her old watercolors and started to paint again to get her mind off the things that made her sad at that time. She noticed that painting made her happier than ever before, and she almost painted every day.

And then, one day, she decided to create an Instagram account for her art. Of course she did not think at that point that it would eventually be her full-time job.

When she graduated from the University of applied sciences (She’s an IT engineer) in 2017, she immediately put up her own business and have been a full-time artist ever since! 

“It’s still hard to believe I actually do art as my job and that finding those old watercolors back in 2014 led me to this point!”

She take her inspiration mostly from the animal and the natural world, recently she’s been super interested in mythical creatures and creatures mentioned in old folklores.
