My name is Maikki Hurmerinta, from Finland. I create whimsical animal figurines out of polymer clay, crystals and resin.I have been making my art since 2015 and nowadays being an artist is my full-time job. I love creating quirky and whimsical pieces as my main goal is to bring a little color and happiness to this world. My main inspiration comes from the nature and the animal kingdom.
Although my art is mainly cheerful, I sometimes deal with serious themes as the climate warming and extinction of species to raise awareness.
My art is my way of connecting with the world. ~ maidarlingdesigns

A toutah or a cheecan. I love to create unusual animal hybrids.

All my pieces are sculpted by hand out of polymer clay and painted with acrylic paints. I also use stones, glass crystals and handmade resin elements as embellishments in some of my pieces. Some of my favourites themes are the space, galaxies and mythical creatures.
