Kaija Rautiainen uses the very ancient medium of weaving combined with cutting edge technology in her images of west coast nature. She starts with her own photography and applies to it imaging technologies and computer aided-weaving and finishes off the work with pigments. Thus, she has created her own unique style in depicting the harmony and vulnerability of nature.
Kaija has exhibited her work internationally, including the American Tapestry Alliance biennales and the Cheongju International Crafts Biennale and her works can be found in corporate and private collections. She studied fibre arts in her native Finland and painting in Brazil. She lives and works in Vancouver, Canada.
