Cute animals feature on the 2023 Valentine’s Day stamps from Posti Finland. Artist Hanna-Maria Mainelakeus used acrylic paints and a brush on canvas to paint the stamp originals.

“The small size of stamps brought their own challenges to the design. I limited the detail of the images and paid particular attention to colour differences and contrasts. The pictures of the stamps retain a fine painterly element, which was the goal,” Mainelakeus says.

Hanna-Maria Mainelakeus is an artistic entrepreneur who works on bespoke art, paintings, art fabrics and has her own clothing brand, among other things. She has also produced large, photorealistic murals.
