Ula Šimulynaitė

My works are intended for anybody who can be described as a “child”. Being a child does not depend on age. Therefore, when I’m creating illustrations, I look at the world and try to imagine it as if still being a child. And I always hope that the reader will discover and recognize a part of himself in the works I create. Since I create both the drawings and the written part myself, the creative process becomes easier. The stories consist of illustrations and text. They complement each other. Whatever you can’t hear, you see, and whatever you don’t see, you can hear.
