My painting is amazing! Not only is it the perfect size for our wall, but most importantly, it bring the most vibrant energy to our home, right in our family room!
I am from Latvia. For many years I lived in the capital city of Latvia – Riga but now I’ve found it so peaceful in my little home in the forest, not far from the sea. In a certain sense I find myself as one with all the nature that surrounds me and my home... It's so wonderful to see how seasons change. Here we are fortunate to experience all 4 seasons- the cold winter with snow, a fresh green spring, a warm summer and a colorful autumn. All this, nature & the 4 seasons I try to express through my creations. Creating art useful things or paintings is my way of expressing myself for the world as a one of a kind, from one artesian in this vast world we all share. I am so thankful for the internet as a way for me to share my works with all the world instantly! It's amazing! In each handmade thing there is a piece of and a peace within me offered to you. I think all handmade things or paintings bring warmth of their creators and people can feel it. I think this is the reason why we all love handmade things...
I consider owning something handmade as a treasure and possibly one of the best ways of living as I myself look for in all things I own that were handmade... My main profession for approximately 30 years has been leather crafting, but I also enjoy working with many other materials When asked what it was that got me interested in making some of my products such as my wood journals, I must admit it was what I seen in the beautiful wood textures each one has, that makes it its own one of a kind creation. The various wood species I use in making my journals, I am proud to say comes from my own forest. This process is like a painting. It is so great to incorporate different materials into ones works, like the artists pallet of many colors and the many pleasures one feels while crafting a particular item with ones hands!
The latest my works is paintings. After so many years creating practic items with my designs I feel it is the right time to start painting because I accumulate so much feelings and ideas what isn't possible to put on books or albums. Painting is the right way how to express what I fell. Unfortunately I have no too much time for this. I hope I will have the chance to develop this my passion and you will love these creations. I'm sure paintings or wall decors bring in home atmosphere and feelings what creator expressed in his work. So be sure to choose the right painting with the right theme for your home. But only you can choose what is necessary for you and your home. I think if you don't know what you need, then nature will be the right choice! Or something abstract with colors what fit for your interior.
