As a child emigre from Latvia, I enjoyed a rich bicultural upbringing which encouraged a unique perspective on my surroundings.
After earning a BA in Art from the University of Iowa, I pursued my exploration in visual arts, while maintaining a career path in various aspects of human services.
For over 25 years I have been intrigued by the possibilities of using societal discards. I cut, manipulate and reassemble this material to discover new combinations and inventive images and repurpose them to create unique collages which often reference the ingenious and artistic expressions of early quilters.
My work has been included in regional and national competitive exhibitions, one person and group shows, corporate collections, and collaborative projects
