Inese Poga

Art has always been a big part of my existence, and it is hard for me to imagine what it would be like not to paint, draw or sketch. Drawing comes to me naturally as breathing, and once I took the pencil in my hands when I was about 3 years old, I never actually put it away.
My style is best described as romantic realism, because my paintings often are rather emotional portraits of my surroundings than a realistic rendering of them.
I love light, uplifting, vibrant colors, and unbroken and harmonic lines. I am trying to implement in my paintings harmony and balance which are the most important aspects of our existence.
I personally do not draw and paint reality, but I'm trying to convey a message through my art: life and we are fragile, lasting only a while, so we have to absorb all the beauty which constantly surrounds us while we can.
