Pia Järvinen is the Finnish born, UK based founder and artist of Otava Art. She studied art in Finland, in Valkeakoski Art School, and found her creative home in abstract art using acrylic paints as her main medium. Her painting style is expressive with bold brush strokes and vivid colours. Pia creates fantasy soulscapes with rich layers and draws inspiration and parallels from natural elements.

Pia is interested in investigating our true nature and invites the viewer to the direct path to happiness with her paintings. Her work originates from peace and manifests as joyful explorations of the self. This is also reflected in the name Otava Art. Otava is Finnish for the Plough constellation (Big Dipper) and can be very clearly seen in the Nordic night sky. She remembers looking at the sky as a child and coming to full stop when contemplating the vastness of the universe. Her paintings come to exist from this same state of awe and innocence.​

In Her Own Words: My paintings are products of imagination unleashed. The themes are about emerging and reaching our full potential. About the freedom and enjoyment of being who we truly are. I explore the playground where there is no right or wrong. Frolicking outside the box. I want to give the viewer the opportunity and permission to let their imagination make their own unrestricted journey with my work. ​This is why I am particularly passionate about abstract art. My paintings are invitations but they allow the mind to move to which ever direction it wants. There are no rules here. I wanted to move away from symbols in my paintings. There may be a geometrical shape somewhere but otherwise your thinking mind has to step aside as it can't use the language it knows to analyse what is being seen. This is to anchor the viewer deeply into the present moment.
