Welcome!

My name is Kalle' Siekkinen; I consider myself an outsider artist because I've had no formal training.
I enjoy painting on recycled materials, which you will see in the gallery link. I've been experimenting with a variety of styles and materials.

CIRCLE OF FRIENDS

JUST IMAGINE

"Just imagine a world where we are judged not by the color of our skin, but the content of our character." Martin Luther King

Our art series entitled NOT ABOUT COLOR focuses on friendship, kindness, self-esteem, respect, sharing, diversity, and FUN.

It's NOT ABOUT COLOR; it's about how we treat each other. That's what's important. Teachers say, "this belongs in every school in America."

EDUCATORS LOVE IT!
