Ulrika Ylioja is an illustrator based in Helsinki. Her illustrations are pictoresque, bold and blooming. They possess unfinished spontaneity, yet every detail has been carefully thought out. Immensely enjoying working with pointed pen, ink, brushes, water color and pencils, she is happy to see her graphical stroke and vivid colour scheme displayed in all kinds of print and web applications.

Her works have appeared in magazines, newspapers, books, business visuals and online projects – for Finnish clients such as A-lehdet, Alma360, City of Helsinki, Like, Otavamedia, Sanoma Magazines, Suomen Lähikauppa, Tammi, WSOY and others. Ulrika studied illustration in Turku Arts Academy (Finland) and the Royal Academy of Art, in the Hague (the Netherlands), and graduated from Turku in 2003.
