Young and talented self-taught artist Monica Sasnauskaite studies at the Institute of Molecular Biology. Monika Jasnauskaite was born 11 May 1992 in Vilnius, Lithuania, where she is living now. “I love nature, fantasy and science fiction, so I combine realistic objects with surreal details. I like to use colored and graphite pencils, pens and pastels”. Monica Jasnauskaite is still uncertain what career she should choose – a biologist, or an artist. It is surprising that Monica started drawing only 7 years ago, when she first saw realistic pencil drawings on the net. Inspired by pencil art of other artists she started learning the technique of drawing and has achieved much progress in it. 22-year-old self-taught artist Monica Jasnauskaite has won several awards at the international art competitions – Colorful Dream, 2011, Poland; Hear the secret language of nature, 2011, Lithuania; Fantasy Garden, 2010, London; Child and dog, 2010, Poland; Sports Figures, 2010, Lithuania.

Monika Jasnauskaite uses cheap graphite pencils – “the ones you can find in a supermarket (I guess the most important thing is a core, I enjoy using soft and gently cores) My fav coulored pencils are Derwent (but they are pretty expensive) and Giotto (a brilliant composition of quality and price)”.
