About the author
I currently live and work in Vilnius.
In 1978 I entered the Faculty of Architecture of Vilnius Engineering Construction Institute (now VGTU), majoring in architecture. In 1983 I received my diploma thesis and graduated.
I went to live and work in Kaunas. I worked at the Urban Construction Design Institute, Kaunas branch. I took part in the activities of Kaunas Young Architects' Union, architectural competitions. In 1987 I returned to Vilnius. Since 1993 I have been working as a lecturer at the Architecture Department of Vilnius Construction Technical College (now the College of Technology and Design). I taught architectural drawing, architectural design, history of architecture and art, and later, with the emergence of new specialisations, I taught interior design and graphic design to students, encouraging their creative activity.
I've been studying art since I was a teenager. I attended the Vilnius Four-Year Art School. In 1977 I graduated from this school with a diploma thesis. I continued my art studies at the Art Department of the Faculty of Architecture. I studied architectural drawing, painting and sculpture. As a student, I liked to draw and paint the old architecture of Vilnius.
I started painting 20 years ago. When I found a free hour, at the weekend or on holiday by the sea, I started to paint watercolours. I created a lot of works in a homestead in the village of Rubikiai - Anykščiai district.
I draw inspiration from nature. I paint from the first impression, I try to convey the feeling of the moment. I like to paint landscapes, Vilnius Old Town, still life. I create compositions based on plants and flowers. I use various painting techniques: traditional watercolour, acrylic, oil painting, oil pastel.
I am currently participating in the activities of the artists' group "Feniksas", painting plein-air paintings and exhibitions. Some of the works were created during the plein air workshops. I organise exhibitions of my work. Since 2019 I am a member of the Lithuanian Folk Artists Union.
