EVELINA MAYNER arrived in the US in 2007 after she had received her Master’s degree of Fine Arts from Vilnius University in Lithuania. Before coming to the US she studied in Austria and lived in Germany, Italy, Russia and Ukraine.
As soon as Evelina arrived in Chicago she joined one of the biggest companies of Architectural Arts in the US as a stained glass restorer. She worked on projects such as the Chicago Cultural Center, Tiffany dome restoration, Art Institute of Chicago, Chicago Museum of Science and Industry, New York Plaza Hotel and many other public and private stained glass restoration projects.
”Growing up in a Bohemian atmosphere and meeting my parent’s circle of famous artists, architects, actors and filmmakers probably made the biggest impact on my life and career” says Evelina.
From her earliest memories she was surrounded by very creative people and there was no doubt in her mind that she wanted to be an artist. To this day she does not regret for that choice at all.
“Art gives my life a creative meaning and a way to express my thoughts, feelings and emotions. I feel great satisfaction creating and sharing it with my colleagues and clients. My art is a way to express the things within me that I am unable to express with words” she says.
Evelina Mayner and her father Alfredas Sutkus founded Baltic Art Studio in 2012. She gets her biggest inspiration from traveling and living in different countries, exploring different cultures and visiting famous museums and galleries.
