about the artist

Eva Migliniece

Eva Migleniece is a Latvian artist. In 1997 she graduated from the Art Academy of Latvia, Department of Graphic Art, and in 2005 gained a master’s degree in pedagogy at the University of Latvia. Since 1996 she has been participating in numerous exhibitions in Latvia, Italy, Germany and France. Her debut exhibition was in the parish house of Dubulti (Latvia) with a set of paintings depicting religious motives. Eva continually works with different themes inspired by nature (e.g. landscapes, flowers, still life), also integrating human form and relationships in her paintings. Whether it is nature or people, Eva identifies the beauty in both and never stops seeking inspiration with a childlike wonder. To maintain posterity and capture the moment Eva regularly uses photographs in her work flow. She works in a variety of techniques – oil, pastel, ink, water-color and acrylic.

The artist claims: „God has given each of us a talent, it just needs to be discovered and used to gain happiness for yourself and, especially, for others. I tend to explore everything that meets my eye, and I reflect it in my paintings concentrating on the aesthetic side. Academic critics might not agree with me, but I find that art creates harmony in people and brings joy into their daily life.”
