About me

About the Artist

Who am I

I am an autodidact artist.

Born in 1980 in Kėdainiai, Lithuania, I received a Master in Law degree from Vilnius University, Lithuania, in 2004. Then I practiced for ten years as a lawyer specializing in intellectual property law, competition law, and litigation. Nonetheless, I felt that I could and should be an artist.

The idea of ​​creating art became too tempting over time. I hung up my court attire and moved with my family to live in Switzerland in 2015. Now I am in Thun where I study and create art. I am married and have 2 children.

What and Why I Create

Art means freedom of self-expression to me. That is why I experiment a lot. Each year I paint a different story. This year’s theme represents my own longing for peace and harmony. My recent works depict stories happening in a never-ending evening filled with secrets and moonlight. It is about the people who a trying to sprout, unfold, and just be.

The creation of beauty was always a destiny of a woman. Respectively, I feel connected to this tradition through like-sewing, embroidering, or weaving, with my brush on canvas. I wonder whether my makings are more folk handicraft or art. 

Welcome and thank you for visiting my site.

About Creativity

My Inspirations


I stand for figurative art. I myself always search for humanity in every artwork that I see, therefore it is inevitable in my paintings too. Plants, animals, rivers, winds, and other elements of nature are inseparable from me and my art. Baltic culture, folklore, and traditional crafts are breaking through my heart and soul onto the canvas.   

My every work starts from a pure and beautiful moment from real life. Then I just need some canvas, paper, oil paints, and time. Every painting is performed in a different way, technique, and style. I explore the endless possibilities of painting. The only thing that connects all this verbiage is me.

Something Special for You?

If you need something made just for you, I gladly accept commissions to paint anything you want. Please, do not hesitate to contact me.

I always loved creating for other people. My initial stage of creation is knowing more about the client’s personality, preferences, wishes, style, colors. Usually, I see a creative vision immediately. If you would not like the result, you must not take it. However, until now, nobody has refused.
