Vineta

Every person in this world has a passion in their life. Mine is painting. It inspires me, shows me in what direction to go in life. Makes my life happier, fulfilled with new emotions. My life is Painting.

I started painting in Latvia: six years in Art School and further three more in
Latvian Art's Academy's induction course. I then stopped painting to wait for the right moment...

I recently came back to my passion. At the beginning I was painting silk scarfs. But then somebody told me that my scarfs looked more like a picture canvas, that was a revelation to me. Inspired by that, that's how my scarfs developed into pictures. Now I am convinced I can call myself a Silk Artist.

Silk and My Depicted women is a secret, surprise, love. I feel happiness when a colourful brush touches against the white silk, which is a beginning for a dream. It brings out my true feelings. Silk painting is a surprise with subtlety, colour and variable. Like a sea that changes colour and gloss depending on the light and pivot.
Silk is cranky, like a little girl. Frequently the outcome is a surprise for myself, because in silk painting you can't make an error.
One mistake and the result is irreversible.
