I was born in Lithuania, in 1980, in the little village of Pagegiai,
on the Baltic Sea. After graduating from high school, I became a
student of Design and Technology at the Kaunus University
of Technology but I quickly understood that this was not what I wanted.
In 2001, I came to the United States and I found my way to Nantucket Island
which with all its natural beauty has become my home and inspiration.
I am interested in color and form, sometimes it presents itself in
recognizable form and other times it’s more abstract.
Often, my paintings are self-portraits
depicting current emotions and self-perception.
I do not seek to achieve a “literal” representation of the world but,
rather, to transform and reinvent it through imagination. I embrace
mood, drama and mystery in my work, conveying those “atmospherics,”
as best I can, through the interplay of light, and shadow and above all,
in the use of color. I attempt always to strike a balance between
immediacy and a kind of timeless resonance, between a freshness of
gesture and a careful layering of glaze and texture to build an “antique” depth.
Designed in the late 1960’s for Nantucket Looms, our classic boatneck sweater never goes out of style. Originally designed to be worn without a shirt underneath, the boatneck can be worn in a more fitted fashion or select the next size up for a looser fit. The saddle stitch shoulders and high boatneck collar are distinctive to this sweater. Unisex sizing.
