Born in Lithuania spent her early years involved in the movement for a free Lithuania, environmental protection and ethnographic research. In 2000, she came to New York as a fashion model, and after 7 years made the transition to photography.
"My photographs are inspired by people and their stories behind them, I strive to reveal something of the humanity that we all share".
Her work has been published in fashion and lifestyle magazines, books and music CD covers both in the U.S. and Europe.
In her free time she enjoys ocean yacht racing, flying experimental planes and high altitude mountaineering.
