I am a Vilnius-based artist and freelance graphic designer. I work in a variety of mediums and styles, including line illustrations, photography, and my own signature carbon monoprint technique. My work is often (but not always) marked by minimal use of line and colour, well-defined shapes and patterns, organic textures, and natural subject-matter.

I work with my own technique, which is based on carbon- copy paper thermal press transferring (monoprint), as well as collagraph print, graphite, ink and some other techniques .
Though carbon-copy paper is not usually considered a material for making serious art, through much time and experimentation I was able to unlock a universe of possibilities, and transform it into a versatile tool. I love this technique, because it gives me the possibility to transfer amazing amounts of detail onto paper, in any shape I want.
The most intriguing aspect of using carbon paper hot pressing is that I never know exactly what the final result will be until I am finished. While I am able to control most of the process, there are always unexpected, pleasant nuances to the finished piece, which keeps the entire process exciting.
