Found in a pile of to-be-sent-someday greetings cards - "Night Wanderer" by Saara Tikka was bought in Helsinki at least 10 years ago.
The wolf in the northern night - a good theme, related to fairy tales and oral traditions.

Though her painting style is sparse, it conveys things-not-quite-there. (Also it looks rather like it could have been stitched, rather than painted.) See more of her art here or here. All I've managed to find out about her is that she's from North Karelia and has illustrated "The Journey of Pietari and his Wolf".
