About the author
"Even though I graduated from the Vilnius Academy of Fine Arts with a degree in monumental art, I have a lot of graphic qualities in my drawing. I am fascinated by the one-take mirror print of a line and a plant. Each line becomes real and unbreakable. I use transparent paper and reprint the same motif several times. I layer my drawings, pushing them around to get different variations. The milky whiteness, the fogginess of the paper, fascinates me. I survive in the movement, the depth, the surprise.
C.P. Estés's book 'Running with the Wolves' has become like a bible for me. I open any page and read it. I don't even need consistency. Through myths and fairy tales, I am getting reacquainted with my true self.
By reading and drawing out what comes from within, I try to cultivate self-love, to carve out my own territory, to invite intuition and feminine sense into my life. To tame her, to make friends with her. Sometimes to be a child, sometimes an old woman. Sometimes a hare, sometimes a lion. Sometimes a strong woman and sometimes a girl."
The artist is a member of the Norwegian Artists' Union (NFUK).
She has participated in over thirty group exhibitions in the USA, Norway, Denmark and Lithuania. She has also had three solo exhibitions.
