Hi! My name is Laima, and I live in Wisconsin. I’m a first-generation Latvian who plays with various forms of art whenever I can.
I enjoy working with a wide variety of materials, and in my spare time you will find me mid-project in a variety of mediums. I love metalwork, cement sculpting, painting, illustrating and creating beautiful, functional things. Much of my inspiration stems from Latvian culture, stories, and traditions. In fact, you’ll notice that some of my work is titled in Latvian. The last five+ years I’ve even been teaching a week-long glass art class in Michigan, as well as trying to figure out more ways to fit more art *stuff* into my every day existence. Someone recently asked me what percentage of the contents of my home = art supplies…. the answer is… a LOT.
I’m a lover of homemade chai, rolling hills, pretty much any kind of sourdough bread, bicycles and making things (duh!). I’m fascinated by how things work, love trying to reverse engineer things, and enjoy sitting by & cooking things on a fire. I also have an extensive spice collection and a mild aversion to following recipes exactly as written. Oh and, I detour a lot.
