I live in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and am by profession a Land Surveyor and a mom. I have always enjoyed creating art, including painting, ceramics and sculpture. I do this in my spare time, on evenings and weekends. I'm always exploring new ideas, methods and materials--ideas come to me as I work. I also enjoy dancing, hiking, biking, camping, the outdoors... My connection to Grand Rapids is through my mother, who came to the city with her family as refugees from Latvia after WWII in 1949. She was 14 when she arrived in Grand Rapids and attended Central High School there, as well as the Community College. She was employed part time at Blodgett Hospital. She passed away in December, but left a memoir in which she fondly remembers her time in Grand Rapids, living in an apartment on Bostwick Ave. I would like to explore and celebrate this connection in honor of my mom.
