[ Requiesce in Pace ]

In September 2019 Sami (Samiarto) Suomalainen, suddenly and unexpectedly, passed away--grieving the loss of his wife just a few months before.

The World lost a talented Fine Artist, a Portrait Painter, a Book Illustrator, and an Advertising Illustrator who created with wonderful free sense of Originality. Most regrettably, I also lost a long-time friend I've worked with for over 30+ years, and a dear client.

In memory of Sami, I have taken it upon myself to keep some of his artistic light alive by continuing to host his website as a memory of his work to those who knew him.

Numerous collections in North America, Europe, and Scandinavia have his paintings, including the Canadian Art Archives in Ottawa. Govenor General of Canada and President of Finland are also proud owners of Sami's art.

Naturally, some of the text within it has been changed to reflect the current situation, but in essence, this was the last website I created for my client and friend. It was revised in January 2019 to coincide with two gallery showings he was having.
