Intro
I live and work in Riga.
Studied in Riga College of Applied Arts, graduated Art Academy of Latvia. 
Mainly I am working in the field of jewellery design although drawing and painting are also appealing to me.  All of “other experience” give me a good push into something new. For example, I found it very interesting to make a puppet for stop-motion animation.

Statement

My first works were made with enamel as I was very much attracted by this old technique. Jewels and colors let me play with their combinations to satisfy my interest in proportions and form language. With simple forms and other elements I try to make my works live and speak. I am always asking what do others people see and hear in my works. The more associations my works evoke, the better they become. They mustn’t be too talkative though, rather to serve as keys to something. Gradually my works have become more ascetic.  Now I like flat, plain surfaces along with sophisticated hinges and joints. This is the same language, only in more laconic frame.
