Jekaterina Belajeva 白凯夏
History: I am artist, illustrator, teacher of arts for children and adults. I felt in love with Chinese painting ~10-12 years ago when I tried to found the best art-therapy technique for pregnant women group in mom’s club. I found that Chinese shuimo 水墨 and Japanese sumi-e styles are exellent to relax future moms and all people around! We was painting, enjoying water and ink play, we were using breath and body – it was amasing result for my group! I was so interested that started to study Chinese visual arts and found them very beautiful, symbolic, with deep phylosophy and history. From that time I studies a lot by myself, read books and watch videolessons, started to stydy Chinese to understand more and read Chinese books about arts. After I found the teacher – Yulia Naumova, the best teacher in Moscow, Russia. In 2015 year I practiced my scills in China, Hunan University and took 2 diploma’s which confirm my good level in guohua and calligraphy. I made the only official Chinese painting and calligraphy studio in Latvia, Riga town and licensed my teaching programm in Latvian Ministry of education.
