My interests in performance expression include bending the stereotypical gender roles, female masculinity and sustainable living using humour and sarcasm as a tool to express my views. I am a graduate of the performance art course by Latvian Performance Art Centre, where I have discovered my abilities to work with my voice and body.
Another interest of mine is stand-up comedy, as I am a part of a crew of women stand-up comedians in Latvia.
My 7 years study and 3 years work background is civil engineering, but I have chosen to not to continue developing myself in this field.
Currently I am learning about social media, brand management and presentation and attending masterclasses related to performance art.
I am an artist and activist. I am always there with my bicycle Žiglis, fabric shopping bags, glass jars, a vegan snack and a grip to make things happen.
