On group exhibitions as ON PAPER, Portals, Second National Calligraphy exhibition, also had organized one personal, called „Printmaking 2013-2018“ in Lithuania.
Most of the time I am using watercolour, etching, lino-cut, calligraphy techniques. In my works there are nature motives, rituals, details from the surroundings. Dominate objects are water, mushrooms, birds and space. Even in the oil paintings there is a lot of graphic details, for me, small pieces, textures and colour transitions are very important. Also context, history, memory and dreams is highlight, there are many different symbols and lots of layering in my works.
