I am an illustrator. It's my full-time career, true love and highest form of creative-expression. I had been lucky enough to study illustration in one of the best places in Europe and am now continuing as a creative professional. What I love most about illustration is its ability to tell stories. Hearing and telling them through images is what I do everyday, therefore, I believe visual narratives such as editorial illustrations, picture books and book jacket designs are my strengths. Each illustration I create for others has a bit my own story too, whispering through lines, shapes and smudges. Now, do you have a story for me?

         I am an illustrator. It's my full-time occupation, love and the highest form of creative expression. I had been lucky enough to study it in one of the best places in Europe - Edinburgh College of Art, and am now continuing as a creative professional back in Lithuania where  I originally come from. What I love most about illustration is its ability to tell stories. Hearing and telling them through images is what I do everyday. I believe visual narratives such as literary illustrations, picture books and short visual stories and are my strengths. Each illustration I create for others has a bit my own story too, whispering through lines, shapes and smudges. Now, do you have a story for me?
