    Hello, I am a digital artist and illustrator with 6 years experience. Drawing is my passion, I love learning new things and constantly trying to find new ways to express my ideas in art. My main focus is 2D digital illustrations: landscapes / portraits / interiors / backgrounds and illustrations for games / book covers. In each of my work I strive to create a unique atmosphere, evoke emotions and tell a story. I'm flexible to various styles and can create eye catching digital art as well as realistic matte painting. I'm also skilled at creating designs for printing on clothes, shoes and accessories. It's exciting for me to integrate my artworks into everyday things, to see them becoming a part of other people's self-expression. Knowledge of the specifics of printing allows me to create designs suitable for different styles of clothes and models of bags and shoes. Art is both my hobby and work and my goal with Upwork is to help clients who need a professional digital illustration.

    I'm MFA artist working professionally for over 15 years, but drawing for my entire life. I have been working as a motion graphics designer and art director although I'm especially passionate about concept art and illustrations. In recent years I've been creating mostly illustrations for computer and mobile games as well as board and card games. Fantasy theme is particulary close to me, but I can easily adapt to many different themes and styles (cartoon, decorative, realistic, whimsical.....) I take my work seriously, so I give my best to every project and I don't exceed deadlines. But my greatest asset is creativity and imagination, so I'm sure I can create for you distinctive and suggestive graphics.
