I’m pure Latvian from a few generations back. I always liked colors and creating, but after failing in some art schools I decided at the age of 17 that I will never take a brush in my hands again. Then the situation changed in 2011. I was 23 and so in love with a musician that my creative side took over. I wanted to express myself as well, so I slowly went back to painting. We meet people for a reason. The relationship failed, but I have more desire for painting than ever before. I worked harder and on May 13, 2015 I had my first solo art show. After that my paintings were exhibited in two different places. I never studied any art, but I’m so hungry for creating more that it just feels right! Now and here!
