    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.
