I was born in 1981, in Panevėžys, Lithuania. I was raised by my grandparents – a clock-maker and a furniture-maker who enrolled me into the Panevėžys School of Music and Arts to play classical piano music at the age of six. In my teen years, I began modelling for local photographers. When I was seventeen I received a 35mm Smena camera from one of the photographers I was working with, and since then I have barely let the camera out of my hands. In 2000 I became the youngest member of the Union of Lithuanian Art Photographers. 

In 2008 I left Lithuania and relocated to the United Kingdom. In 2021 I moved to Edinburgh and became a member of Edinburgh’s Photographic Society. 

As times are changing, using my 35mm Canon camera started to become too time-consuming, so I have replaced it with the Sony A7 II. However, I prefer to edit my artwork as little as possible, instead letting the real life composition and colours speak for themselves. It is very important to me that all the effects I achieve are natural.
