Dace Sietina

“I was born in 1978 in Jelgava, Latvia. I grew up in Kalnciems (Hillvillage), which is really a small place. As a matter of fact, there were no hills at all, but a flat landscape with lots of forest and potato fields. The meeting point for locals, was the Fuel station. As far as I can remember I was always drawing. I made my own stories and I had a bunch of thick notebooks full with my drawings. Unfortunately I don’t have them anymore. In 2009 I finished Willem de Kooning art academy in Rotterdam (The Netherlands) as an illustrator. I let the circumstances lead me in my life. As a result, I am a newcomer now in the world of comics, which I find exciting and inspiring. Often the inspiration comes from my childhood. Or I make a mix: the past with the present.”
