Hello, I’m Ulrika Ylioja. I’d be happy to illustrate for you!

I’m an illustrator based in Helsinki. My illustrations are colourful and bold – they possess unfinished spontaneity, yet I take care of every detail. I enjoy working with pointed pen, ink, brushes, water color and pencils, and I’m delighted to see my graphical stroke and vivid colour scheme displayed in all kinds of print and web applications.

My works have appeared in magazines, newspapers, books, business visuals and online projects – for clients such as A-lehdet, Alma360, City of Helsinki, Like, Otavamedia, Sanoma Magazines, Suomen Lähikauppa, Tammi and WSOY. I studied illustration in the Royal Academy of Art (The Hague, the Netherlands) and Turku Arts Academy (Turku, Finland).
