History

Probably most boring part, but as partially military minded person I do appreciate certain order – especially in my own life. The same is with keeping in order own “footprints” in this life. Before some serious activities in the Art fields I accomplished Ceramic section of Rēzekne Applied Art School in Latvia and somewhere between – Latvian Art Academy and even managed to get Master degree.
