Annuli Viherjuuri makes mainly figurative oil paintings. Viherjuuri finds it necessary for her art to reflect craftmanship, beauty and content. Her main themes are peace and silence, also presence and purity. Her art has been considered to convey a sacral atmosphere.

In her last pieces of art Viherjuuri considers deep emotions of humanity with melancholic touch when fear of being hurt and disappointments of life put one to encounter one’s own smallness. However, with help of patience and silence the nest of comfort can calm one who is curled up in its shelter. Thoughtful pieces of art exhale quiet therapy.
- My working progress varies thematically. My art works are mainly made of one or more human figures surrounded by their own world. Although I like to make figures as pedantic as possible and I try to achieve classic beauty standard, a figure is meant to be just a dealer for emotional expression. Sensitivity is my way to see, feel and achieve through art something bigger than words.
Annuli Viherjuuri (b. 1984) has been involved in joint exhibitions in Finland abroad and has had solo exhibitions since 2006. She graduated as Bachelor of Fine Art from Satakunta University of Applied Sciences in 2008. Viherjuuri was The Young Artist of Summer 2010 at The Art Center Salmela. There are her art works in public collections for example in Oulu Museum of Art (OMA). She lives and works in Kokkola, Finland.
