Paulius JUODIŠIUS

A WORD FROM THE AUTHOR

Creating is great fun. I do my best to have as much of it in my life as I can. Creation takes the form of new fairy-tales, drawings, wooden toys, vegetable pies, strange sounds... I try to share my joy with children because they make the most sincere audience.

Born: August 7, 1969, Vilnius, Lithuania.
