2D Art • Animation • Character design • Illustration • Graphic design


I completed my Visual Artisan studies in 2012 and animation studies in 2017. So far my education has given me a great knowledge of graphic design and narration in film. Storytelling and 2D art are my passion. I enjoy creating characters and stories that can stand out both narratively and visually - even though doing so can sometimes lead to panic and confusion in the audiences. Still, the vision and purpose behind the stories are the most important to me. Besides 2D character and animation works I'm often drawn to video editing and visual designing overall.

At the moment I'd love to get work on creative and some way ambitious projects as a part of a team and gain more knowledge from the experienced artists in the animation, film and game industry.
