MIKSI is finish and means why. Matleena Laine the founder of MIKSI is an finish artist specified in circus and handcraft. Under the name MIKSI Matleena creates her work, mixing different creative practices.

” I am specially interested of the power of art and art making as a tool for feeling good and a way to connect to each other and to our selves. I believe that creativity offers us a great opportunity to create trust. If we don’t put pressure and demands on our selves or others and instead enjoy the moment of creating and sharing without any expectations, I am sure we learn more.”

Matleena is educated at the University of Circus DOCH in Stockholm and later she has fulfilled her education with Gestalt therapy at GIS- international in Denmark and Specialist Craft Tutor at Nyckelviksskolan in Stockholm.
