Pet Portrait & Wildlife Artist

Pet Portrait & Wildlife Artist
Danguole Serstinskaja is a world's leading drybrush painting Master from Lithuania who focuses on hyperrealistic style. Danguole has lifelong experience as an artist, with skill ranging from academic art to impressionistic oil painting, and after producing hundreds of drawings and paintings of landscapes, animals and humans, she eventually found and developed a rare technique which perfectly aligns with her artistic desire to portray animals and people deeply, accurately and efficiently. The said technique is applying oil on paper using a dry paint brush. Having mastered this technique Danguole has gained a liberating amount of control over the intensity of shading and ability to add as much detail as she desires. She works layer after layer, until her artistic vision is fulfilled, and the result is art with distinct tonal gradation, hyper realistic detail and contrast that makes the painting hard to distinguish from a photograph, enthralling many artists and collectors from various and even opposing backgrounds.

Alongside all of her accomplishments, Danguole has been fighting cancer for 12 years and despite undergoing brain surgery in 2016, she continues to paint and express herself artistically with relentless motivation, hoping that she can serve as inspiration for others to take life's difficulties head-on and persist on realizing themselves and their visions.
Danguole's works are owned by collectors around the world and have been featured in international publications. Danguole constantly takes parts in various competitions. Her most important award was 29 winnings in American Art Awards and Masterpiece 2018, where the artworks was judged by 25 best art Galleries and Museums across USA.
