Ausra Capskyte was born in the middle of the 20th century /1966/ in Vilnius, Lithuania. She has tried to learn to draw since she was twelve. And she is still trying to. In 1993 she graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Lithuania. Ausra Capskyt is a member of the Lithuanian Union of Artists (graphic arts) and the Lithuanian Club of Bookplate Creators since 1999. Her basic occupation is the illustration of books (she especially love to illustrate fairy-tales). Maybe this accounts for a huge number of literary (fairy-tale) details and symbols in her pictures and bookplates. Since 1994 she participate in graphic and bookplate exhibitions in Lithuania and foreign countries. She have about 30 personal exhibitions of bookplates, color graphic, and book illustrations.
