“A work of art which did not begin in emotion is not art.”
- Paul Cezanne
Latvian Artist, Silvija Treice was born in a small town called Jurmala, and now lives in the capital city of Riga. She is a self-taught photographer and dares to say, digital artist. In 2016 she discovered the magic of digital art when she luckily found the “Photoshop Artistry” course run by Sebastian Michaels. It took some time to get to the point when photoshop manipulations and creating art became part of her life.
In 2018 Silvija was enrolled in the “AWAKE” course with Sebastian Michaels. In December 2018 she was invited to the international group of digital artists called “KAIZEN”. She has found like-minded friends who support and encourage her. Her work doesn't represent a particular style; she enjoys experimenting with textures, lights, brushes.
"It is a joy to transform photos or visions into art. Sometimes little things like a shell, a simple flower, stones at the seaside, nice music or memories can be transformed into art."
Since December 2018 Silvija's works have been published in the international magazine “Living the Photo Artistic Life” and received Honorable Mention and Special Merit awards in exhibitions at “Light Space & Time” as well as Finalist Certificates for participation Circle Foundation for the Arts' contests. Some of her works have been exhibited at the Blank Wall Gallery in Athens, Greece and the More Art Please gallery in Brasov, Romania.
