"I am a glass artist working with individual orders in architecture and interiors. I am fascinated by interacting with people who are looking for exclusivity and want to enrich their environment with art. Constantly experimenting and using a variety of glass techniques, I am interested in new trends.

The glass should work in harmony with the surrounding environment so it is essential I work in tandem with an architect designing a building and begin to implement it in parallel with the construction of the building. Glass requires natural or artificial light, so in collaboration with the architect we would select the vents for the flow of light, equipped with the proper wiring to reveal the beauty of the glass.

In 2000 I graduated from Kaunas Higher School of Art (now KK J.Vienožinskis Faculty of Arts). In 2006-2007 I gained a figure glass craftsman specialty at the University of Sunderland (England), in architectural glass, hot and sculptural glass art. In 2008 I graduated from Vilnius Art Academy with a speciality in monumental art (stained glass) obtaining a Bachelor of Arts degree. In 2010 I graduated from the Vilnius Art Academy with a master’s degree. Since 2000 I have been taking part in exhibitions and international glass art projects".
