Mosaic artist Leena Nio's fairytale garden

The Kimara art trail is an art environment created by ITE artist Leena Nio. The artist had time to live in Paris for 30 years, until she decided in 2014 to return to her childhood home, Tuusula Jokela.

A completely new environment opened up for Leena, where the lack of space no longer limited her creativity. Over the years, a huge number of works of art have been created, and at the same time, Nio’s backyard has grown into an incredibly beautiful fairytale garden. The Kimara art trail is about 500 meters long, and along it you can admire more and more exquisite mosaic artworks.

On the path of the fairy tale garden, art is not a separate experience, but is integrated into the everyday environment. When entering the Kimara art trail, the first thing that catches your eye is the transformation of ordinary objects. Wheelbarrows, mannequins and animal figures have been given a colorful shiny surface.
