Visual Development Artist

about

Hi!

I’m a design industry veteran with more then 12 years of projects under my belt.

Working with game companies, comic publishers, film studios, architects, advertisers, design agencies and various other clients, I filled many creative roles, ranging from project ideation and art lead to content generation and teacher.


I pride myself on being able to define a unique visual style for any project, building effective art pipelines, guiding teams through the production and getting stuff done using my own two hands.

Please, don’t hesitate to contact me, if you have any questions or request.
