I am Ernesta Kurpeikyte, a Lithuanian illustrator graduating from University of Northampton. With my work, I like to explore portraiture and character design, creating atmospheric and mystical work that evokes a variety of emotions through the usage of colour and light. I also enjoy incorporating traditional media simulating textures into my work as well as expressing the notion of aesthetic beauty.
