I usually spend a lot of mental effort to come up with an idea and a plan for each art piece. However, I recently created an artwork that didn’t follow my usual routine and didn't have a sketch or a well-defined step by step for its creation.  Imagine the time when you were in a pure flow. That is not how I usually create my art, but once you step into this state, it feels so right, and it feels like it is coming straight from the depth of your soul. Associations and emotions that came to my mind while...

Connecting with Ancient Magic - Exploring growth, decay and regeneration - Vase commission

We recently took part in a local exhibition in Southend (at the New City Gallery) and met an incredible range of talented artists there.  However, the two of them really stood out for me.

When an artist becomes an artist? What was the foundation for my artistic practice

I knew I wanted to be an artist from a very early age.Even my mom was telling me various stories about how I was stealing her lipstick when I was little and drawing all over the walls at our place.But my very first own memory related to anything to do with art was when I was drawn by someone else whilst spending my summer holidays with my grandparents. And  I can remember it like it was today. It's summer 1994 in a small Latvian village. And it's super hot outside. I am 7 years old and I am speeding up along...
