Jana Brike was born in Latvia when it was still under Soviet occupation. She began rigorous training in art as a child, spending at least 5 hours per day painting and drawing in an arts elementary school, at some cost to the freedom she might otherwise have enjoyed as a child. By her teens, she was showing her work in international exhibitions; she went on to earn a master’s degree in art from the Art Academy of Latvia. Brike’s work tells pieces of her own story but with themes that resonate universally: love, self-discovery, growth, exploration and longing. The imagery she employs reflects influences of folklore, mythology and Brike’s love of nature as well as her contemplations regarding the “feminine soul space.”
