A born visual storyteller, I have always been driven to create. From my earliest years, I eagerly participated in art competitions at school, excelling on both regional and national stages in Lithuania. With an infectious enthusiasm and approachability, I am an active artist who wholeheartedly embraced the path of Arts & Design studies as the most natural trajectory for my career – as natural as being true to oneself. My artistic journey is one of channeling emotions and opinions into visual expressions. I employ a diverse range of Graphic Design tools to fuel my creative processes. My innate ability to seamlessly shift between visual genres, honed through experience, empowers me to transform blank spaces into poignant narratives. Witnessing this transformation is the reward that perpetually fuels my intrinsic motivation. With a cumulative work experience spanning fifteen years across diverse printing and advertising agencies, I've traversed a dynamic professional landscape. During an eight-year tenure as the proprietor of a creative printing house, I led a fifteen-member team. This extensive journey has crafted me into a versatile professional characterized by teamwork, leadership, rapid adaptability, and a knack for solving challenges responsibly. Always up for a challenge, I thrive in high-pressure scenarios where "multitasking" is the norm and requests like "I need it yesterday" are par for the course.
Over seven years ago, before moving to Canada, I eagerly grasped my DSLR camera, embarking on a transformative journey into the captivating realm of photography. With each click of the shutter, I delved deeper into the intricate dance between lenses, focal lengths, and angles, striving to encapsulate the very essence of the subjects before my lens. This artistic voyage, however, was only the beginning of a fascination that has led me to where I stand today. With an unquenchable thirst for learning, I find myself still unraveling the vast tapestry of possibilities that photography has to offer. The uncharted waters of food and product photography beckon, promising a symphony of visual storytelling that resonates with my fervent devotion to plant-based recipe creations. The prospect of encapsulating the textures, colors, and details of food with the same ardor that fuels my culinary explorations is a pursuit that ignites my creativity anew. As my journey evolves, I remain deeply committed to honing my craft, mastering each nuance, and unearthing the innate artistry that lies within each captured moment. With every frame, I strive to convey not just what I see, but the emotions, narratives, and stories that breathe life into the stillness of an image. And so, I embark on the next chapter of my photographic odyssey, eager to intertwine my passion for plant-based culinary delights with the limitless canvas of photography.
