Lina ŽUTAUTĖ

A WORD FROM THE AUTHOR

When reading a children’s book, I am immediately overwhelmed by various images begging to be drawn. I almost do not use sketches, but just render on paper things I see in my mind’s eye. Illustrating my own text is sometimes very simple, yet it might get quite difficult. It is very gratifying to share things that I enjoy with children.
