Inge Löök (real name Ingeborg Lievonen) - Finnish artist

Old ladies
Inge Löök was born in Helsinki in 1951. She is both a gardener and an illustrator. Today she lives in Pernaja, Finland. Her illustrations are mainly inspirations from her own surroundings or life. To date, there are 36 different images of the aunties. Other favorite images are from the nature.When she was a child, Inge lived with her family in a 7-storey building in Helsinki. In the same building lived two older women, Alli and Fifi, who later became the inspiration for the characters in her postcards. She says the women look nearly the same as their real-life models... but they have a lot more fun!
