Hi! I'm Jaana. (The J sounds like a Y)
I plan to use this page to share my projects with you. I will be sharing finished work, progress updates, ideas, vlogs about art, vlogs about everyday life, and you never know what else!

My top projects are all around inventing a language and the people that speak it and the place where they live. It all starts with a language and spirals out from there, landing in story ideas and project ideas. I am SO excited to share more about this process with you. I have always been a little secretive about the details, because it is a neverending #WiP, always changing, always getting redone, always getting left in the dust for the next one, but those few occasions when I have shared more details with someone it has always been such a delightful moment of connection.

A wide variety of media and ideas catch me and compel me. I love to draw, paint, make videos, record sounds, invent languages, illustrate dreams I've had, and do my best to turn those activities into an experience to share. I am on a journey of cycles and swivels from medium to medium, and searching for balance between whatever arty thing has me in its grips and all the other things one must do in order to survive.

For more examples of my artwork, browse my website: mentoleum.com.
Mentoleum is a word I cooked up from the Latin roots for "mind" and "oil" to represent all the creative things that can come from the mind. You can modify or delete your pledge at any time, so don't hesitate to sign up.
