BIO OF FIRST PLACE WINNER:

Danguole Serstinskaja is an award-winning artist from Lithuania. She has been on a lifelong artistic journey, which has included academic, impressionistic and abstract painting. Alongside all of her accomplishments, Danguole has been fighting cancer for 13 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. www.petdrawings.net
