Nelli is an illustrator, painter and social media maven, who grew up in Finland. She moved to London in 2010, honed her craft, and married an Englishman. Ten years after she arrived, she moved back to Finland where she now runs a successful marketing consultancy in Helsinki with her husband and dog, Susan.
Nelli has dabbled with pen and ink illustration for years (normally involving cute animals) – and progressed onto experimenting with watercolour painting. She has an unwavering and infectious zest for life and love, which comes across in her art.
We saw her work and loved her style as much as we loved her. Further to our commissioning of Of Course I Still Love You, she has started to receive more and more love for her artwork, with projects such as album cover design, corporate projects and even wedding design being commissioned.
Of this piece, Nelli says: “It shows two creatures enveloped in the beauty of the universe, taking comfort and joy from each other’s presence. Of Course I Still Love You is a nod to true love; whether that’s between friends, family or lovers.”
