The Hidden Beauty in Simplicity
Born and raised in Russia, Siberia, Lidia Mikhaylova spent most of her life working in the corporate world as a lawyer. After more than 15 years in Moscow, she decided to move to Riga, Latvia, to pursue a lifelong dream of becoming an artist. In Latvia, she became inspired by the colorful imagery of her surroundings and completely fell in love with painting. In the fall of 2019, Lidia had an opportunity to travel across the ocean and witness the incredible beauty of America, where she continues to transfer the beauty of the surrounding reality onto canvas or silk. Paintings on display at the library come from the series “Tender Is the Night,” “Grandma’s Front Garden,” and “My Sweet Fall.”
