In her paintings, the artist consistently portraya the nature of Latvia, together with her observations in Latgale, where she spends the summers with her family. The deeper meaning of Ilze Orinska's paintings is a story of fragileness of every single ceature, the uniqueness and unmeasurable value of being alive.
