I am a Dublin based artist of Lithuanian heritage and my paintings focus on colour or the absence of colour in everyday life. I primarily work using oils on canvas and mixed media and my inspiration comes from my surroundings and travels. 

 

My most recent work has focused on an empty apartment building in my area which could and should have been utilized to reduce Ireland’s homelessness crisis. Empty buildings that are ‘Hidden in plain sight’, evoke a mix of emotions that I try to convey in my paintings.
