The Moment

Majestic elephants are my source of inspiration.

Punctuating this very fine artwork, I think a lot about the ability to be faithful to intended path, to destiny.

The title of the work is "The Moment" and the feeling that the aunt of this work Iveta Miķelsone-Chekhov wants to convey is "Eternity is only a moment".

Can you imagine this? Can you realize?

"We are repetitions of each other, we are created in similarities, only the edges are repeatedly turned to each other. We are similar in our uniqueness and unique in our similarity. And each of us glows differently. “(I.Ziedonis)



Stippling artwork "The magic of colors"

All the colors of the day shine in this dotted work. It has everything from the very beginning to the end - from the big bang to the present day.It has a hidden path of the sun from summer to summer, through the years and through the days.

Bright and sunny colors – creating this work I really felt how each color creates a range of emotions in me. Color therapy is not just a myth! 



Stippling artwork "Tiger"

This tiger is a small departure from the African theme in my works. I can't stop admiring nature's miraculous ability to create something so majestic and wonderful. This work does not require much explanation, and each person has their own inner feelings that it creates. Maybe that's why this work has gained a lot of popularity among buyers.

Each point has its own place to form the glow of a tiger fur. Those are very fine details that together make up the fluff. To dot the lightness of details is the most difficult part. This was a long but very meditative process. I wanted to dot this tiger so when looking at his eyes you could feel the purposeful soul of this big cat.



Stippling artwork "Eye"

This work is my first acquaintance with the mirror of my soul. Dotting my own eye was a very personal experience. Dot by dot, I encounter memories, adventures, and events over the years. Both the envy of pain and the miracle of love have permeated this work.

As a result, I looked into myself through the reflection of my eyes and realized that it is a wonderful feeling to be  aware of yourself. I am! - it cannot be changed. I am doing it! - it can be a choice. I very much hope that this work will also inspire you with a clear vision and goal to do what really excites you and to perceive all experiences as another reason not to give up.



Stippling portrait "Jemila - Beautiful Somali Lady"

I started dotting this work of art directly from the most beautiful part of the photo - the blue scarf.

It's like choosing the focus, seeing what is so special in this image. This work required me to pay special attention to be able to depict the beautiful face and skin of Jemila. Here, when dotting, a lot of different colors I used to highlight her cheekbones and make her face so alive.

This was the second time I did it by ‘Dot-By-Dot Technique’. At the first time, I stopped after 5 hours of work to realize that there are too many details and you have to think about them right away. Dressed in a festive costume, she recalls a beautiful culture which, although no longer widely practiced because of the prevailing Islam in the country, is deeply rooted in her heart.




Stippling portrait "Amal - Hope from Morocco"

When creating this dotted painting, I encountered a real test in combining colors. Amala is a gorgeous African woman who, although gentle in nature, is proud of her origins and believes in the future of her country, Morocco. Her tenderness is evidenced by her elegant posture and attitude, while her bright scarf and costume tell of her ethnicity, showing the courage to be in her homeland and believe in its essence.

Morocco is beautiful not only in movies, its magic can be seen also in life. I was creating this dotted work for 12 hours. The feelings were the same as after a sleepless night, when thoughts travel and special emotions open, when you are sad about the sorrows of the whole world, but at the same time captivated and happy about its beauty.



Stippling portrait "Aara - Queen of South Africa"

She is a goddess! Honorable Queen of South Africa – Aara. 👑

Strong in her thoughts and actions. Have seen and experienced a lot, she has learned to look over things, allowing her femininity to flourish.

Dot by dot I made her dress, the sun-kissed skin, and all over there is her feeling: "I'm strong, I can do so much!".



Harriet Tubman    

Harriet Tubman is best known as the woman who freed many from slavery.

But she was a woman with many hats – during the American Civil War she was also a nurse, spy, and scout for the Union Army.

For a moment I wondered which photo of Harriet will be the one I choose to be dotted. But I stayed at this, where Harriet was photographed around her forties.

This is the moment in life when you realize how strong you really are and how much more you can do to make the world a better place.

 Harriet inspires me, and I hope so do you.



Stippling portrait "Oprah Winfrey"


Oprah Winfrey is a strong woman to be inspired by following her life. She is one the greatest women to look up to and find inspiration to spread love and inspiration around the world. I have created portrait of her in stippling technique honoring this magnificent women and her admirable legacy.



Tasty life

"Life is incredibly delicious!

Even when we are given the taste of the most acidic lemon - it is up to us to choose - eat it and wrinkle your face or add to it the softest and sweetest taste of honey.

Only by enjoying the full taste of life will we really begin to distinguish - which bunch is closest and real to each of us. ”

This special boy's dotted work was named after its aunt Daina Ločmele and it is "TASTY LIFE"



Miriam Makeba    

Miriam Makeba is a vivid example of a personality who, even in exile for 31 years, was able to keep in touch with her homeland through music.

Miriam's South African roots were marked not only by her deep, African-only voice, she also expressed the pride of her homeland through her clothing and hairstyles.

Work on Miriam Makeba led me through emotions that reflected that we are all inhabitants of this planet. It doesn't matter where your home is, it matters what is in your heart and how you show it to the world.    




Madam C.J.Walker    

This is Madam C.J. Walker. She is a woman who believed in her strength much more than we can imagine.

She did not break under many failures, but continued what she started until she reached the zenith of her life and career as the first black American woman to be a self-made millionaire.

Thank you, C.J. Walker, I dedicate this artwork to you!    



Tatenda - Mauricius Miracle        

I created this work inspired by the beauty of African natural hair and the diversity of its arrangements.

Tatenda - that's what this work is called. Maiga Brence has given a name to this orange queen of Africa. 

"I am grateful and proud of my past and my life. For my mistakes and gifts. For who I am today. Strength, love, beauty and depth are my companions as I walk the paths of life." 

The feeling that she is really a tolerant, sincere, creative and self-confident woman did not leave me. Tatenda enjoys the life and takes the best out of it.
