Saint Petersburg, Florida

Since the early age I decided to become an artist . Painting was always the most attractive form  of selfexpression for me .I received MFA degree from Vilnius Art Academy in 1994. 

 My work experience include pattern printing designs for the textile factory "Silva" 1987-1994. Short after the graduation I was invited to take the Senior Designer position at the textile factory "Kauno Audiniai " ,LT . In 1996 I immigrated  to the USA and started the new carrier as an individual artist at  Two Lions Studio in Chicago, IL. From this point until now I  concentrated my painting theme in to the urban industrial landscape of Working America . 

I became a citizen of US in 2009 .

I won Soho International Competition in 2003 and was presented by Agora Gallery, NY.

Most recent awards are :

Merit Award ar Winter Park Art Festival 2013 ,Orlando,  FL;

 Juror Award at Cherry Creek Arts Festival 2012.
