For me art/creativity is a natural expression of life, an endless unfolding of possibilities. What interests me is that which is not overtly expressed in the world around us. The subject matter of my painting is the subtle wordless realm of sensation, feeling, and intuition. This territory is often ethereal, quiet or soft and sometimes frontal, bold, direct or stormy.

Painting is my way of expressing an emotion or moment in time to share with others. I paint a variety of subjects in many mediums and find in each a joyful challenge; I'm currently experimenting with abstract expressionism. I show my work at the Portland Art Museum, in numerous galleries throughout Southern Oregon, and at the Saatchi Gallery in London. My father was an artist and my great, great grandfather was George Inness, an artist of the Hudson River School.

  • Talent, Oregon
I begin my watercolor paintings with an idea and a drawing. I build the painting layer by layer, drawing lines and shapes, looking for rhythm and feeling. My color sense is a reflection of my childhood in New Mexico fused with colors from my home in the Northwest. My goal is to go beyond the surface to find joy, wonder and a bit of mystery.

I have a degree from the Academie of Art and a Biology degree from the University of Riga, Latvia. My sculptures in bronze are in private collections in Latvia, Germany and England. When I came to Alaska from Latvia in 1997 I was overwhelmed by its beauty; I was able to observe Alaska's magnificent brown bears and painting them with Alaska scenery became my passion. In 2003 I came to Applegate, Oregon. My paintings are exhibited in Ashland, Medford and Jacksonville galleries.
