About Marja-Leena Rathje
(detail from ARKEO #1, with actual prints of my hands)
I am a Finnish-Canadian visual artist living and working in the Vancouver area of British Columbia. My first and longest love in my art practice is printmaking, with photography a growing passion. This site is where I display much of my work and reflect on various obsessions, interests and happenings which may affect or inspire me in my artmaking. My new 'Gallery', still a work in progress, is where a large selection of my printworks can be seen together within their series.
To learn more about my art practice, you may enjoy The Art of Seeing, an interview of me published in the summer 2013 issue of New World Finn magazine (PDF).
Information about my art education and exhibition history may be viewed in my curriculum vitae. If you would like to know more about any of my work, I would be most happy to hear from you via the Contact form.
