I was born in Latvia. After spending a fabulous childhood in Riga within an artistic and creative environment of post-soviet decadence, I left for Finland in 1992 to study at the University of Art and Design of Helsinki. 5 years later, in 1997, my passion for travel pushed me further: I discovered France and Paris and finished there my master studies of fashion design in French Fashion Institute (IFM). I felt in love with this fabulous country, forgot to move on, and finally settled down and founded family. That’s how I still live in France. - orange and beige paint filling an abstract background.
