Minna Koistinen has been living and working in Toronto since receiving an MFA from the University of Art & Design in Helsinki in 1997.

Minna has enjoyed teaching her fine art glass blowing workshops since 2001, having led hundreds of students through the process of glass making.

As a geologist's daughter, I learned about minerals at an early age. Growing up in my native Finland, this knowledge translated into my love for glass - a material providing endless possibilities for discovery.
