Paavo Stenius, who previously practised his profession of nurse, is a self-learned painter.
The paintings can easily be approached and understood also by fine art newbies. Stenius does not intend to preach with his work, nor does he hide in-depth symbolic meanings in his art. The paintings look alike its creator: small or large, they bathe in the full spectre of colour. The topics range from expressionistic captures of the landscape all the way to higher spheres, up to space.
