When I was born, doctors told my parents to give me a strong name to be more healthy as I was born prematurely. So they named me Māra - in honor of the highest-ranking goddess in Latvian mythology.
I have a disability and although it is not that easy to notice, it has left footprints on my life. Functional disorders made me feel uncomfortable and has set some physical limits, but art has always helped me feel more confident and free.
Knowing what goes on in the minds of people with functional disorders, I decided to help them by leading art workshops.
This is why Māra Drawings was created - to let everyone feel the magic of art - either by looking at it or by having a chance to express themselves in art.
