It was in 1999 when my professional career began in “Ive”, a major workshop in Riga. I started out as a woodcarver's assistant for several locally known and highly reputable masters. While I learned and mastered different woodcarving techniques there, I specialized in early baroque-style ornamental carvings. Wood carvings is my passion of life. I can carve baroque and classical, freestyle and art deco.. and contemporary art also.
