Spotlight On The Seller… ‎Giedre Sadauskaite

I am an artist based in Sheffield and specializing in the textile and fine arts field.  My signature is to create a unique touch using traditional techniques and materials for a wide range of products such as hand painted, one-of-a-kind floral silk garments, silk scarves and paintings, as well as quirky happy illustrations onto homeware products to create a bright interior element and bring a smile to everyday life.

My work is primarily inspired by things around me, such as symbols and metaphors used in fairy tales and, reflecting beautiful emotions and nature through use vibrant colours. My most popular line of products is funny cat’s illustrations in various scenarios where I often portray them as humans.

Honoured with a diploma in Textiles at the Academy of Arts in Lithuania, I came to Sheffield where I gained an MA degree in Design at Hallam University. 

While in Sheffield, I embraced new experiences and opportunities to investigate and look from a different perspective as a designer. I have further developed my previous experience in textiles by experimenting and using craft skills, mixing different mediums, incorporating traditional materials, like wool and silk, and transforming them in various contemporary styles to deliver unique pieces.
