About


Audiovisual artist, balancing music and sonic art with the visual expression in narrative and non-narrative short films, photography and audiovisual installations.

Beginning at the National School of Arts in Lithuania (Vilnius) as a classical conductor, I chose to move to filmmaking and enrolled to Film and Music degree in Brunel University (London). Working on my first short films and audiovisual installations in collaboration with other artists, I decided to expand my horizons and explore another capital of European culture – Paris.

After graduating from Film Directing MA programme in Paris 8 University, I am now based in Paris and Brussels, participating in film and visual arts projects as a director and video editor.
