About Petra Santaharju

I'm a finnish freelance illustrator and graphic design artist living in NYC. Ideas for my colorful creations come from my vivid imagination which, I've noticed, doesn't have an off-switch. I'm mostly inspired by vintage photographs, interesting color palettes, movies, music, nature and my childhood.
