About the author
Artist Rasa Staskonytė is an enthusiastic seeker by nature. Wherever she travels, she carries oil paints and canvases with her, because she simply can't help painting.
According to the artist, the best way to paint is to paint from life - not only the surface, but also the inner world is revealed. Rasa feels this especially when painting portraits of people - underneath the exterior, which is sometimes rough, you can see a person's experiences, and then you understand why they are the way they are. Rasa also breathes life into plants, using shimmering brushstrokes to convey their swaying. And all of her work is accompanied by vivid, transparent colours.
