"I have been working with wood for more than 35 years – making sculptural objects, design pieces, decorative objects and also fully functional pieces of custom-made furniture.
I used to own a small furniture-making workshop that employed 8 people. For the past few few years we have been just a few colleagues and friends – working together, and devoted to the artistic creation of unique design pieces made of wood.
I like to play with optical illusions and gravity. Some people say my custom furniture pieces are like sculptures. This is reminiscent of the early years of my work when I was active in the creation of sculptural objects from wood."
"I have participated in over 50 art exhibitions since 1983 (12 of them were solo exhibitions). I am a long-time member of the Latvian Artists Union (since 1990) and of the Designer’s Union of Latvia (since 2009). My works are in permanent exhibitions in the Latvian National Library and the Museum of Decorative Art and Design of Latvia. I was awarded the “Design Award of the Year” for my sculptural furniture piece “Chair in Chair” (Latvian Designers Association, 2008), and the European design magazine “Deko” Award of the Year (2007) for “The Beetle” cabinet in the unique design category."
