Card no 211 20th Sept 2012
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, most especially from nature. But it is for 'The Aunties' that she is best known. To date, there are 36 different images of 'The Aunties', a series of cards of old ladies. I think they are brilliant and after seeing one on a postcrossing blog I added them to my list of cards I would like to receive on my profile. No sooner had I done so than Soile from Helsinki sent me one.
