Soile Yli-Mäyry
Born 1950, Kuortane, Finland

Soile Yli-Mäyry of Finland, a painter for more than 25 years, makes her paintings by using a palette knife. She uses paint in three ways: a thin, even coat, thick lines and by scraping lines into the painted area for a three-dimensional look. The main theme in Yli-Mäyry´s work is humanity and people´s alienation from nature in the urban world.  Since her arts studies at the Arts Academy in Stuttgart in Germany (1972-75 she has had about 250 solo exhibitions since 1976 in 25 different countries; Japan, China, Hong Kong, Singapore, India, Latin America, United States, Dubai and in many countries in Europe.

Besides the career as painter Mrs. Yli-Mäyry studies political science and has taken her Licentiate´s degree in Political Science at the University of Helsinki.
