To be able to create art – it is a very important aim in my life. Since I was a child I spend a lot of time searching and creating in order to understand ancient craft. Today, I am very grateful to my dearest grandmother for the knowledge gained. I always was very interested in learning something new and this is probably why I decided to join Telsiai and Vilnius Academy of Arts in Lithuania and became a professional designer. One of the main purposes of my creativity - is to preserve and adapt the old craft traditions in modern life.
Felt – is one of the oldest textile manufacturing techniques. Eco-friendly, organic, readily degradable substance on earth, therefore this is one of the reasons why we have just a very little knowledge about it. To felt it is like to work with clay, where we can extract the desired shape and textures. Endless possibilities and perspectives, this is probably why felting is so well established in the modern fashion, interiors, sculptures – today felting is everywhere…..
I start felting in 2008 and each time when I am working on a new project I find something new in it. Felt inspiring me to create and experiment. Combining a variety of materials we can get amazing results.
Currently I am producing hand-felt eco shoes, jewelry from wool & wood, mixed media tote bags, interior details. I am starting to collaborate with other artists, textile designers, leather and print makers, photographers, graphic designers, tricot masters, we working delicate and attentive to find new level for our products. My main creativity and production aspects are - quality, delicacy, practicality, modern design and ecology.
