Matti grew up near Seattle, Washington where, as the son of an artist and founder of a local art college, art supplies were always available. He spent most of his free time as a child drawing, and art was always a medium through which to express his inner experience and find endless entertainment. Matti studied fine arts briefly at Northwest College of Art and Design, but remains mostly self taught.
"I strive to create artwork that inspires self reflection and discovery, and I'm grateful to have the opportunity in this life to share my creative expression with others."
Matti moved to Kauai, Hawaii in 2016, where he currently paints and is involved in self development research.
