Originally trained as a ceramist, she studied at the Institute of Industrial Arts in the ceramics department in Helsinki from 1948 to 1952 and worked for Arabia from 1952 to 1953. In 1953, Vuokko Eskolin-Nurmesniemi joined Marimekko to design clothing and printed fabrics for clothing and interior decoration.
