My paintings represent my thoughts from childhood memories to the vastness of the ocean. It’s all in one: a fresh summer breeze, snowflakes that fall in December. It’s a tiny bouquet of hepaticas, cold raindrops, reflections of long-distance travels and the beauty of Neringa’s dunes.
I, Violeta Marija Bičkutė, was born in Vilnius, but I spent my adolescence in Panevėžys. Step by step I went to the Art World. When I was a little girl, I enjoyed drawing and I was happy when I was praised. These little works led me to Panevėžys Children’s Art School. Here I learned about the colours and shades of life, started to hear their music, to see the light in a dark colour. I have graduated from Vilnius University with a bachelor’s degree in economics. Later I was educated by the environment, people, books, nature, exhibitions, music, and travels. The influence of interaction between Lithuanian roots and folklore is reflected in creation, as if magic, which brings love into human life. Everyday painting and drawing go side by side, enabling me to put my inspiration on the canvas. My abstract works show the spectator’s meeting with himself, a trip to his own presentiment, memories, or visions of the future. I only take the brush when I am under the influence of good emotions. I have been promoting Lithuanian values outside Lithuania for a while. Other countries like the USA, Spain, Luxembourg, and Denmark have already become acquainted with my works.
