I was born in March 1966 in a beautiful city – Riga, Latvia. Whole childhood and teens I have dedicated to sport. I have received a title of World-class athlete, I became the champion of Latvia, USSR and Europe in acrobatics and I was a member of USSR national team for 6 years. I have studied at the institute of physical education at the pedagogical faculty, however after numerous injuries I was not able to continue my sports career and become a coach. Switching my attention to family and a new born son I have closed the doors back to gymnasium. 90’s were crazy and it was time to think about keeping food on the plate, so me and my husband opened our own restaurant, which was our source of income for 12 years. My son has grown up and left for studies and work in London giving me more time to develop. Ever since I was little, I was good at drawing and loved taking pictures. Husband got an alluring proposal to work in France and we have been there ever since. Move to France has heavily influenced my creativity, my view of the world with different eyes. It was there where I really got into photography which became my hobby, my life, my view of the world – through the lens of the camera. I live where Mark Shagal resided and worked which inspires me. Genre photos, street scenes, architecture, wildlife – genres which I love the most. Context and authors vision are the most important for me which is what I aim to share with my audience. From July, 2016 I have participated in numerous competitions in which I have taken a Prize-Winning place.
