About Rasa Saldaitis. Oil & Acrylic Fine Artist

I was born in Vilnius, Lithuania. In the 7th grade I was exposed to and fell in love with art.  By the 8th grade, I was attending art school and graduated at the top of my class.

After high school, I attended the Vera Muchina Academy of Applied Arts where I studied realistic drawing and painting.

While studying, I was able to visit many well-known museums such as Hermitage Museum of Art, where I admired the works of the masters and world famous artists.  During this time I committed my life to becoming an artist. My exposure to such wonderful art has helped make my paintings what they are today.

From 1984-1989 I trained to become an art instructor at Pedagogical University in Siauliai, Lithuania. I received my Masters in Fine Arts in 1989, and I was valedictorian of my graduating class. During that time, I exhibited in many Art competitions and Art shows.

In 1991, I opened an art studio called “Ugne”, which translates to “Goddess of Fire”.  "Ugne" specialized in decorative ceramics and paintings.

In 1994, I moved to the United States.

Today I concentrate primarily on painting, and my work can be found in several galleries and art shows.

My European background and experiences in America heavily influence my oil and acrylic paintings. They reflect my love for color and the world around me. I feel that every artist dips his brush into his soul and paints his own nature into his paintings.
