ABOUT THE ARTIST… PHILENE VAIVODS
“I have always enjoyed color, design and all creative art. As a child I re-
decorated my bedroom many times as well as my dollhouses. It was fun
dressing my dolls and paper dolls.
While in college majoring in anthropology, I also took classes in design and
art history. These classes have influenced my works. I am interested in
many fields including science, architecture, fashion and cultures, and my art
Over the years I have painted off and on, and in the past 15 or so years have
expanded to mixed media. While listening to classical music, I am in a
different space creating. It is interesting to start with shapes, and then see
how it becomes a piece of art. I like the freedom of just an idea that becomes
art using different materials, textures, colors.
The Bainbridge Island art workshops I have taken were very helpful for
collage design and composition. I enjoy the art community here.
It gives me pleasure to see people smile when they view my work. My goal
is to create Happy Art!”
