ABOUT

I am a glass artist who is passionate about glass and thrived by exploring its creative potential to produce stunning glass installations. After graduated I got into J.Vienožinskis arts faculty as to become a glass master. Why I chose glass? Because of its potential and an amazing variety of opportunities that you could do with it and with how many different materials you can combine it. Then in 2000 I got an outstanding opportunity to study in University of Sunderland and to broaden me knowledge in an architectural, hot and sculptural glass. In 2008, I am got a bachelor degree in stained glass specialty, in 2010 master degree. I am working with individual orders in architecture and interiors. Also produce glass jewellery and specializes in eco-design. I am likes to experiment with different glass technologies and also interested in new trends. All the production is hand-made, I do the whole process from a piece of glass to the final product, so this way I put all of my love into work and give attention to the smallest details. These days I am in producing glass not just as a decorative interior element but as a multifunctional sculpture.
