My strong background in drawing allows me to teach students to achieve the best results in the shortest time.
I assume this life as ever changing scenery which I am capturing with my brushes, paints and pastels.
I am working with watercolour, acrylics and pastels in my home-based studio in Whitby, Ontario, and some of my art can be viewed in this on-line gallery, Facebook, other websites and my blog.
The country of my origin is Latvia, a beautiful land on the Baltic Sea. It has ancient historical roots, and not surprisingly a rich and deep tradition in watercolour painting, notably landscapes. I had a chance to gain some great experience participating in two wonderful Latvian watercolour artist classes and workshops: Karlis Taube and Aina Upmane between 1970 and 1976. Watercolour is unpredictable, spontaneous, and moody, but rewards anyone willing to assume the risk, and that is why I find it the most fitting for my artistic goals.
My paintings are created on location, from my sketches, or using as reference real objects.
My favourite subjects are nature scenes and landscapes, I also love creating bright floral and still life paintings.
I am for the most part a self-taught artist.
I have hundreds of room plants at home, and when the spring comes I always start up my small garden. That all can be used as a great source of inspiration which I actually never have to look for, because I don't think I will ever stop wondering at the indescribable mysterious beauty of nature. I love all seasons equally, and all of them have found their reflection in my paintings.
My work is displayed in some institutions of Latvia, and in many private collections throughout Europe and in Canada.
I'm also a full time medical translator, working globally.
Please visit my studio-gallery in downtown Whitby, Ontario.
I'm offering only original artworks of different sizes and prices.
