about me

I have had a creative spirit since the early childhood, as I grew up in the family of two amazing artists. My father is a well known theater and movie actor and my mother - a poetess and interpreter. Therefore my life has been interwined with the art very closely.

I studied the iconography in the Latvian Christian Academy. Icons are made both for churches and people, who honor an icon as a holy thing in their homes.

Frequently, some oil paintings and graphics are made. And between pen lines and brush strokes, few lines of the poetry appear.

And what would be the world without music? To sit at the piano and to live through compositions of great composers - I have to thank my outstanding piano teacher Aleksandra Vikmane for that. Music is another miracle in this world, created by the God, as well as the chance to participate in the never ending process of creation.

In 2013 I with a collegues founded icon painting workshop "Eleusa" in Riga. Working in the workshop is my main job, I'm conducting a lessons in icon painting and graphic.
