Having a successful carrier in web design in London for quite a long time, I began to deal with fine art to express my emotions and feelings.

I’ve been drawn by the magical beauty behind fine arts since childhood.
The earliest extant my drawing is a big size wall drawing “Sailboat with inflated sails at sea”. All time when my family owned country home on Baltic Sea – this wall drawing keep on the wall. In independent Latvia, house was demolished and drawing gone and this “simple” pencil wall sketch is gone.

The process of creating art gave me what I needed I felt at that moment – ways of expressing myself inner feeling.

On 1991 The Soviet Union Collapsed and The Baltic states (Estonia, Lithuania and Latvia) declared their independence from Moscow. From this time I never return to this country.

After I lost my lovely doggy my oil paints became as my life way in this world. Capturing moments that are full of emotion is the key to my Art.
I would like to bring Love in this peace.

During the creating process, I don’t limit myself to a specific style or medium, my art is represents mixed media.
My creating process is based on my emotions and my energy I felt at the moment I created it, of depend of real situation in my life and in world population life.

My work encourages viewers to interpret it their own way and evokes different feelings in the audience depending on their individual experiences and memories.

I be inspired by the beauty of the rapid world around me at which is everything changed so fast.
I now began working on the history paintings I had lived and dreamed of.

I am nationally recognised for the quality of my work. I have held solo exhibitions, been awarded prestigious art prizes, have exhibited outside of my home country and appeared in national and specialist press.
