My name is Pauliina Yliniitty. I live with my family in a small town called Oulainen in Finland. I have three children; two sons and a daughter.
Twelve years ago at a short course of the calligraphy I realized that I had found what I had been searching. The calligraphy as the form of art touched me deeply and the most of all forms. It is still touching me. I do enjoy everything in it. A single letter, a word, a written thought or a colour can be very fascinating.
Later I studied calligraphy at University of Applied Sciences of Satakunta for six years and graduated as a Bachelor of Culture and Arts in 2014. Since that I have given workshops in calligraphy and bookbinding in Finland. During studies I became a fellow of the Calligraphy society of Finland.
The inspiration comes from many sources like traditional poetry, sometimes only a single word, colors in nature, different kinds of materials or handwriting itself. There is always something to discover in calligraphy itself or around you.
My calligraphic work have been shown in many exhibitions all around in Finland during years 2010-2018. In 2018 I was invited to send some pieces of my art work to Contemporary Museum of Calligraphy in Moscow. I also had an honor to take part in Maria Osipova’s project ”Masha Writes” with other calligraphers from many countries. This book was published at the end of 2018. The original work were shown in the exhibition at Contemporary Museum of Calligraphy in December 2018
I have attended many national Calligraphy Weekends in Finland and taken courses with well known calligraphers like Marina Soria, Massimo Polello, Ewan Clayton, Rainer Wiebe, Klaus-Peter Schäffel, Veiko Kespersaks among others.
Since April 2019 I have served as the President of the Calligraphy Society of Finland.

As Elena herself says: “the sign is interesting to me as a hint, as a reference to the further perception of every object that exists in reality. When creating signs, it is interesting for me to experiment with different tools and techniques, and as a result, I can see various transformations of letters and signs. Embossed calligraphy provides a unique opportunity to extract characters in three dimensions. Interaction with light and the surface of the paper is important when creating embossed calligraphy. ”
2015 Elene Pellicoro founded atelier MiroModo in Turin. Constantly conducts calligraphy workshops, paper design, 3D painting workshops in Italy and other countries.
