Solveiga is an artist of Latvian origin, but has lived in France for 16 years. A sensibility for colour and light has an important place in her paintings. Telling of, expressing, and sharing the world’s beauty, a world about which she is ever excited and appreciative, holds an important place in her life. The Fauvists and Impressionists Dufy, Monet, Matisse, Chagall and later Berthe Morisot inspired her first steps.
Suggestive, semi-figurative or semi-abstract paintings in acrylic provide a level of detail that leaves much room for imagination and dreams. The subjects to which she returns regularly are the emotions experienced and impressions collected throughout her many travels in Asia, the United States and around the world. The details are cheerful, positive, intimate.
"Our life is a journey ... Travel makes up our lives," she is known to say. For her, painting has always been a source of joy, happiness and well-being.
A graduate stylist from the School of Applied Arts in Riga, she obtained a Master of Arts at the National School of Fine Arts in Helsinki (Finland) before training as a designer at the French Institute of Fashion 1997. In 2008 she took painting classes at the School of Fine Arts in Paris, and exhibited often in the Paris region, not far from where she lives. Solveiga, faithful to her past as a fashion illustrator, paints everything she finds beautiful and harmonious. Everything that makes her heart beat. Her biggest challenge is to be able to communicate these emotions. It would seem that the popularity of her works is genuine: her paintings are now part of many private collections both in Europe, Australia and the United States.
