Time Well Spent

about Riina Maido

The hours of folly are measured by the clock,
but of wisdom,
no clock can measure

As often happens to many artists, inspiration is experienced as a real burden, something halfway between wisdom and madness. One of Riina Maido’s lovely illustrations describes very well not only this aspect, but perhaps her whole visionary existence. A path which has brought her around here and there, without ever letting her lose the right amount of irony that always makes an illustrator. Time well spent, as it turns out.

Visual artist, illustrator and graphic designer, Riina was born and grew up in Rakvere, Estonia, on May 1961, and studied in Tallinn and Moscow, Russia. Today she lives and works as a freelance artist in Helsinki, Finland and is a member of professional organisations such as The Association of Professional Graphic Designers in Finland Grafia and The Finnish Illustrators Association, Kuvittajat — Illustrators of Finland.
