I was born in Kaunas, but I spent my childhood in Katlėriai village, in Anykščiai district. While studying at art school, I became interested in ceramics, and since then I have started to deepen my knowledge in this field.
I currently live and work in Paandrioniškis village. The surrounding nature gives me inspiration for my creations, but it is just a part of my inspiration. The other part is devoted to history, traditions, and mythology. A part of my works was inspired by Lithuanian folk songs, as well as animal motifs and was destined for children and grown ups.
I try to connect the present with the past in my works. I combine historical motifs with modern forms, various methods of burning ceramics, and I also use sgraffito technique in many works.
