The story of Proshka and where my Artist name came from.
Everyone asks me about my artist name, the story is one of family and love.The name Proshka is the derived from my Latin heritage, it was taken from the maiden name of my grandmother, Lia (Praskevics) Tattersfield. My grandmother left her hometown of Riga Latvia, when she met my grandfather Tom Tattersfield, from Leeds England, they both moved to Belize (a former British colony, then called British Honduras) in 1948, making this their new home.
They and starting a family one of their three children was Deborah Tattersfield Gegg, ,my mother the rest is history. I never did have the pleasure of spending much time with her is cancer took her life when I was only two so as a tribute to her I took her name, Praskkevics pronounced Proshka-Vicks and shortened it to Proshka. I’ve used it ever since.
