I‘m inspired by a large space, especially near the sea – colours, changing moods. My colour is slightly ‘putdown‘, soft….I am looking for illussion of light in my works of art, watching the changing mood of nature. For me it is very important light – both in nature, both in my artworks coloristic interpretation.The art critic Jurgita Ludavičienė, “Abstract elements are also treated by this author with sensitivity and tenderness: dots, ashes, spots, interruped lines are sort of rolled up into a blanket of rippling undertones… By their subtlety, the shades used by the author allude to the French literature, for example, Gustave Flaubert “An umbrella in the colour of pigeon craw…”
