Whitby, ON


My newest artworks, detailed information about my art classes and art projects can be found on:

I am offering interesting art projects, acrylic painting, watercolor painting, pen and watercolor sketching and drawing classes and workshops for teens from 10 years and adults at my studio-gallery "Art plus Life", located in the downtown of Whitby, Ontario.
Most of my recent art is on display at the same gallery.

I am working in watercolor, acrylics and pastels. For more info, paintings in progress, painting tips and ideas for art classes, please visit my Facebook page:
and my blog:

I relocated to Canada in 2004, but 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 watercolor painting, notably landscapes. I had a chance to gain some great experience participating in two wonderful Latvian watercolor artist classes and workshops: Karlis Taube and Aina Upmane between 1970 and 1976. Watercolor is unpredictable, spontaneous, and moody, but rewards anyone willing to assume the risk, and that is why I find it very fitting for my artistic goals. My most favorite form of visual art is drawing since I started it at a very young age and never stopped improving.

My paintings are created on location, from my sketches, or using as reference real life objects. Drawing comes absolutely naturally to me, so I am drawing and sketching anywhere.
I am finding huge inspiration in seasonal changes, treescapes, in particular leaves of trees and plants, nature scenes and landscapes, I also love creating bright floral and still life paintings. Still life is something I can spend numerous hours at and I am often seeing an opportunity to create a still life just from items around me.
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.
I have been working successfully in interior design, as a fashion designer, therefore my love to crafts and crafted art, but, unfortunately, I cannot devote all my time to creation of art since my other job includes writing and exploring medical conditions, summaries of clinical trials, psychology and treatment, including art related therapies.

My work is displayed in some institutions of Latvia, and in many private collections in Germany, Latvia and in Canada.
I'm also a full time medical writer and translator, working globally.
