~ When the heart is full of little birds, there is no space for anger or bitterness. ~

Iida's style of making art branches out in many ways: she draws, paints, photographs and writes poetry combining all these elements. The past few years she has concentrated on working more with inks. Time after time she has ended up exploring happiness or the delicate forms of existence itself. Precious stories can be found all around, no matter where you are or in which company. Thinking about art and life in general: it's good to keep your senses alert, because behind every corner lies the possibility of something that can make your day.

Iida grew up in Kaskinen, which is not only the smallest town in Finland, but also an island. She has BA degree in photography. She graduated from Arts Academy at Turku University of Applied Sciences in 2008. Her artworks have been exhibited in Finland and abroad (France, Germany, England, Czech Republic, Italy, Poland & USA). Her works belong to private and public collections such as Albertina Museum in Vienna, Austria. Some of her poems have been published in Italian and English, but she writes them mainly in Finnish. She has illustrated newspaper articles and magazine, book and album covers.

Heart - eartH

The moment
-----------------

The moment seems to disguise
as a strange vagabond from afar

He comes closer
confidence echoing in his steps
As if we had promised to meet
right there – – where we came

Where are we going?

when fortune climbs up
from the inside out

No need to hide

So softly, so simply
the lines of our hands
unite for life

The moment moves me
Lights my heart – all the way up
Every forgotten corner

Reminds me how to slip back
into a smile –

how a gardener leans on nothing
when the artless ancient song
embraces the flowers
in every color

Did you notice?
– – rush just passed by
