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.
You may wish to learn more about me and this site from an interview by Melanie McBride in 2005. Please check out the PDF link for that original page with images, though with the passage of time several links are no longer active.
For information about my art education and exhibition history please view 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.
