A Latvian born designer based in Amsterdam. I work on diverse topics and approaches: with a focus on society as a larger context. I believe it’s important to embody the newness in my expression to make work visually present when it comes to visual communication.
I look forward to finding the essence of certain social phenomena and culture differences in trends and what connects us all, and to expand upon it with my perception.

I find charm in colours and shapes, and I dwell to work in different mediums to analyse the forms and mechanics of newness.
