Marija received a Bachelor’s degree in product design from Vilnius Academy of Arts in 2010 and completed her Master’s in contextual design at Design Academy Eindhoven in the Netherlands in 2014. She studied industrial design via an exchange program at Kunstuniversität Linz, Austria. Marija uses the human body as a starting point for her designs. Whether it’s a piece of furniture or jewellery, it always possesses an intimate, organic connection with its user. Marija sees the design process more like a ritual where all the given factors, phenomena and coincidences cause the result. She mentors at Vilnius College of Design, works as a product designer for several brands and participates in exhibitions with her own collections. Her current interests are jewellery, ceramics, leather, glass and textile technologies.

Milena uses traditional graphic art techniques (e.g. dry point) in a mix with old photo art techniques (e.g. cyanotype). “It enables me to draw the blue into graphic. It also creates the feeling of freedom and easiness,” the artist says.
