Evija Laivina was born in 1978 in Latvia. Her interest in photography started in 2007 after she received her first camera as a gift. Very soon she was captivated by possibilities expressing her ideas in photography.

In the summer of 2009 Laivina arrived in Scotland where she started Contemporary Art Practice studies at the University of Highlands and Islands.

In her work, she explores themes related to women identity and beauty standards.
