Art Director, Photographer & Set Designer based in Riga, Latvia.
Educated as a Designer and fascinated by Photography I end up combining both. I work with storytelling in space, whether it’s a small still life setting or large-scale installation, translations of ideas and concepts into visual realms is my biggest drive.
I’ve been working for several years on my dream project Ezera Skaņas as an Art director and Stage designer, meanwhile developing interactive experiences for new museums in Latvia. Photography is the most direct channel to freedom and creativity for me, there I can experiment with unexpected combinations of materials, discover nuances of light and search for new ways how to achieve the desired atmosphere.
