A painting is a melody that plays with the sounds of emotions and beauty in our head and heart. To me, each painting is a piece of life - a life that lives on its own, on its own terms. You start from a blank canvas, and like creating music sound-by-sound, you add each new brushstroke, each new color, creating harmony, beauty, and a new experience for a mind to absorb. From the chaos of emotions and imagination, a new balance is born in each painting.
I am from Lithuania. Now I live and create in sunny Cyprus.
I started creating at a mature age. In 2010 I graduated from a private art school in Lithuania. From that day, I don't stop experimenting, trying out new ideas, and improving, letting my imagination guide me. Now I am a full-time artist.
I travel a lot and I try to transfer the beauty I see around the world onto the canvas. My works are made with oil paint and acrylic on canvas, applied with palette knives and brushes.
I like to share this life with others, bringing it into their homes.Through my paintings I want to give happiness, confidence, strength, the beauty of the world surrounding us. So that everyone can enjoy their lives.

Under Sail “Under Sail”

50.5 x 61 x 2 cm
$1,545 free shipping
A man on earth is like a ship in a sea. It is constantly going somewhere. My abstraction erases the limits and gives flight to imagination. Each one of us is a ship, cruising through life. Dive into your fantasies and rush over the waves with this ship.

Fantasy in Blue “Fantasy in Blue”

76 x 76 x 4 cm
$860 free shipping
This beautiful, colourful butterfly will bring abstract art into your life and create an atmosphere in your house that is comfortable for communication.
A butterfly is a symbol of change. I depicted this process of metamorphosis using a palette knife. One can gaze into the blurry lines on this painting and every time observes a new transformation.
It beautifully complements the painting “Fantasy in Pink" with its colour and atmosphere.
Here I used oil paint to show the beauty and lightness of a butterfly better.
The abstract style helps to enjoy the colourful transitions.
The artwork is made with oil paint, the edges are painted and the painting can be hung without a frame.
The strokes done with a palette knife give volume and expression to the painted lines.
The painting is varnished, that protects it from sun light, smoke and humidity.

Aphrodite.Arisen from the waves “Aphrodite.Arisen from the waves”

50.8 x 71 x 2 cm
$1,660 free shipping
The enchanting birth of Aphrodite, the beauty of the sea and power of the waves are depicted in this abstraction. Confident and mysterious look of Aphrodite is facing the viewer, while partly-covered with a wave, it maintains its secrecy. The water currents via the strokes of a palette knife direct the water flow through her delicate body and repeat her movement. With each step the distance to the observer decreases and the fantasy of meeting the beauty brings up positive emotions and the mystery of this promise.

Sophistication “Sophistication”

Size: 76.3 x 60.5 x 2 cm
$1,460
free shipping

This abstract painting was inspired by the details of a rose. The interlinking of petals reminds me of our everyday thoughts. Look into the depths of the flower and see your life. This is a journey only into your own world. The abstract flower guides us in our lives to look beyond the ordinary and find the balance between imagination and reality.
