My CV with my qualifications is
From very early age I worked in many different art medias, beginning with drawing secret stories underneath a table.
Painting , drawing and sculpting are a part of my life. I like observing people, an environment and nature.

I was born in Lithuania's beautiful village. I've lived in Sweden, Norway and now in England, Surrey with my creative husband and two creative children Arthur 6 years old and Julia 8 years old.
My focus is sculpture . I enjoy working on unique projects in my studio.
Indoor sculpture -figurines
I make unique figurines mostly from supersculpey. They have a nice ceramic feel finish and are sustainable in low firing temperatures. Other options are- clay, stoneware, plaster or porcelain. I mostly do private commissions.
outdoor sculpture requires a different approach .
I am interested in memorial sculptures and experiment with jesmonite which can withstand weather conditions such as rain, sun and snow.
I make moulds and do cold casting. I research how sculpture can age gratefully through time and get even more exciting.
I am a ceramic artist with over 20 years' experience. I went through the similar path as many other artists- Art school, BA in ceramic in Art Academy in Lithuania, MA in ceramics in Oslo Art Academy, Norway where I combined glass and ceramic, metal and ceramic and experimented a lot.
Now I live and work in London, United Kingdom.
My approach to any commission or project is very personal because I do unique objects. I experiment and try to put my own touch in sculpture. Every detail is rethought, examined and applied in the best way I think.
It requires not just technical skills but the most importantly, it requires thinking that an art object itself would say more than you see.
Sculpture should not become a dull uninteresting accent of an interior or an exterior but it should become more engaging in new different ways that you didn't noticed before. An artist need to put something in his artwork that always keeps people wondering.
I do commissions and make my own sculpture too.
Some of them are made from a sudden impulse straight forward. Some are born from a deep contemplation which involves a lot of sketching, research and experimentation.
However, all they need to have a certain feeling and a dynamic that could tell people a never-ending story.
Difference from your competitors
Creativity and challenges of new projects appeals to me. I don't let materials to limit me. I experiment and try new approaches.
A process itself is very important because it defines final results. Without the creative process you don't have a result.
Different sizes of sculptures give different feelings. If you want a strong impression you usually go for a big sculpture.
I am an artist who wants to communicate through sculpture. If it intrigues you I am happy. If it not, it means i failed.
Story behind the business
An idea for this sculpture business came from my friends. I like what i do and try to do the best way I can. Somebody said - "choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life".
Big sculptures require much more time. They can be made from stoneware clay and fired in high temperatures or they can be cold casted in plaster, jesmonite with various stone, metallic and coloured finishes.
I can make a sculpture for bronze casting. That involves later passing the sculpture to a professional bronze casting technician.
Three dimensional objects tells a story themselves that no photo camera, no video recorder can record and reflect in a exactly the same way. It is an intrusion in your space that you cannot ignore. It shapes a space around you and you can love it or want to demolish it. You can be inside or outside that artificial space.
Sculpture doesn't let us to become lazy. It makes us to walk around.
You stop and you make your conclusion about sculpture. Then you take a few steps and from different angle you will see differently and you will have a different conclusion and so on. This is a communication where you don't need art critics to say what is good art or bad. You decide for yourself.
Art as an object is very important. You make an object and put it in a strange alien space and it communicates with you. The object you see, the environment you are in and you yourself, as an individual with your memories , experiences , knowledge and your cultural background, creates a chain of impressions that helps you to perceive an artwork in a certain way.
The same art object in a different environment affects you in a different way.
The same object at a different point of your lifetime can connect with you on a deeper level or can become meaningless and dull.
It is important for an artist to make objects on impulse... Of course, not ignoring a technical knowledge.
Art objects plays the different tricks on different people mind. Nobody can exactly define art in words and nobody can put a "right price" on art.
