I am a Finnish independent artist, curator and art educator living and working in Mänttä; Pirkanmaa and Ivalo, Lappland.

After graduating from the Kunstakademie Rotterdam, Graficus B.A,
in 1993 I have worked as an artist entrepreneur. Studio Wäkewä is my own company. Presently I am working on an Arts Promotion Center Finland 3 year artist grant.

The city of Mikkeli awarded me with the 
Mikkeli award in 2011 and I received the Arts promotion center of Finland South-Savo art prize 2016.

Presently I am working on a grant from the Arts promotiion center Finland (2022-2024).

I am represented by Gallery Halmetoja Helsinki.


”Törönen can be described as a draftsman, who has detached herself from the paper and carried the drawing to various materials and also to spatial works..”
Curator Veikko Halmetoja


”The labyrinths converted into metal matrices are of a special kind. They reach a new dimension with a certain archaic load.”
Critic Petr Vanous
