Tatjana was born and has been living all her life in Riga, in a small area between the Art Academy and Elizabeth Street.

Already during the kindergarten teachers predicted the little drawer an artist's destiny. Although, nobody was connected to arts in the family, she was constantly drawing in sand with a stick in hands.
Tatjana lost her father at an early age and has been growing independently as other 50ies - 60ies kids, and she was the eternal engine and captain of the yard kids. Tatjana enrolled Rozentals Art School by herself even not informing her mum. The artist tells that becoming an artist was not as easy as a pie for her and she had drawn on to the level of the more talented school and academy members, in her opinion, only by thorough and accurate work.
Her teachers are indisputable stars of Latvia and Europe art - Imants Vecozols, Pēteris Postažs, Boriss Bērziņš, Edgars Iltners and academic Eduards Kalniņš. She has been among the few who have done the postgraduate course or workshop with the academic Eduards Kalniņš.
Tatjana is proud to have had the honour and uncommon confidence to visit and grow artistically at the academic's home, studio and also have him at her small studio in Elizabeth Street apartment. The experience and knowhow given by these art grands has been invaluable and it has helped Tatjana to grow the one and only art figure, which she has become.
