Alongside making art, she has been extensive appreciator of nature, different cultures, languages and narratives of perveiving the world since young age.

Recurrently Väyrynen explores human relationship with nature and the world in her artistic praxis. Väyrynen approaches environment as a process, as an embodiment of cultural and societal values, yet subordinate to globalisation, pollution and technology. Väyrynen departs from painting. Nevertheless, she understands painting closely related to space, time and research. She is intrigued searching possibilities for painting, form or material wise. She is also keen exploring questions like, what human need painting might meet or as what kind of tool, it could be used in today´s society? Combining painting with other methods, she creates installations, which take their final form in an exhibition space.
