I don’t consider myself a painter and probably never will, but I see paint as the medium in which I feel most able to create something new, freely, without the feeling of knowing too much. There’s no wrong answers or dead ends, just that feeling that messing around with colour brings.
I tend not to use brushes, instead preferring to manipulate various blobs of colour with kitchen scourers, knives, razor blades and plolyfiller.
I’ve only come back to working with paint recently, and have found uploading my stuff onto Instagram to be a good source of feedback, so please feel free to do the same.
‘My works are an attempt to turn the flat surface into space with the help of colour. Into vibrant space that takes you inside.’
‘I was born in a small village in Latvia. At present time I am living in Leeds. Through my life, I have created different types of art. But my last passion is painting. I’ve been painting with oil colours since 2015.’
I Paint using watercolours, occasionally oils and recently mainly acrylics on canvas. I like to work on a theme and have done a number of paintings on hares, autumn leaves, wildflower meadows, trees and pebbles on a beach.I often paint from photographs I have taken.
Most recently I have experimented with acrylic pouring techniques. I am fascinated by the unpredictability of the finished work. I like to superimpose animals in black on the pattern. My favourite theme is sea colours and marine animals. The finished result makes a unique piece of art.
I have been painting for about 25 years and have exhibited my art at Inkwell, Leeds.
