Ruta Naujokiene, Chicago Member Since July 2013 Artist Statement I have always loved artistic beauty and I love to create through different art mediums.
It has only been recent that I ventured into acrylic and water color painting. I also enjoy photography and the creative aspects of photo transformation and enhancement into digital art. My expressive art form started as only a hobby, but I quickly found that I love this medium through which to create and express. It has now become totally consuming, as I am filled with ideas and a unique eagerness for which to begin my next work.
My art work has become special to me, and it is my hope that you will find it special as well.
