I was born in 1981 in Panevėžys, Lithuania. My artistic journey began under the influence of my grandparents—a clock-maker and a furniture maker—who recognised my potential early on. At the age of six, they enrolled me in the Panevėžys School of Music and Arts, igniting my passion for classical piano music.

During my teenage years, I discovered another form of artistic expression through modelling for local artists. At seventeen, a pivotal moment occurred when one of these photographers gifted me a 35mm 'Smena' camera, marking the genesis of my profound connection with photography.

Experimentation with technique, a dedication to creating visual effects organically during the photographic process, and the pursuit of conceptual depth define my artistic principles. Unafraid to broach uncomfortable themes in an era dominated by 'positivity,' I believe in the power of art as a universal language. This conviction compels me to address societal issues, fostering meaningful dialogue and reaching a diverse international audience.

My artistic journey, rooted in early exposure to the arts and fueled by a dedication to authenticity, reflects a continuous evolution marked by resilience, creativity, and a commitment to challenging the status quo.
