Story of Velvet Mirage iliustrations.
As long as I could remember I was always drawing and doodling. The love for the craft led me to local art school in Lithuania at a young age of 9 and saw me there through the teenage years. After finishing school I decided to shake up my life and moved to California, USA to study fashion design at Orange Coast College. After finishing my design studies I took another major turn and moved my life to London, UK and pursued a career in retail visuals and spent a few years decorating and installing retail shop window displays. However, while trying to pursue my career in fashion industry I never stopped drawing fun fashion illustrations that have been my passion since I first discovered it at a young age. It was a hobby and a good skill to have when trying to create fun gifts for my fashion friends – giving them fun and whimsical fashion illustrations drawn of themselves.
It wasn’t until 2017 that I decided to give it a try and turn my hobby into a side business. However, soon people fell in love with my fun, unique illustration style and side business turned into a full time occupation. Now I live in London and blisfully doodle my life away.
