illustrator | 2D artist | digital painter
Warsaw, Poland

I have been working in digital media since 2006, using mainly Photoshop. My main area of interest is fantasy and dark art but I turn to different types of art at times to break the habit. Recently I am exploring AI generated art as a means to quickly visualize ideas, of which some are developed into full paintings.
In 2008 I started my freelance illustrator carreer, for first 10 years combining it with full time job as a zoological educator and animal keeper and animal rights officer, finally in 2018 I decided to focus solely on art. I worked for many clients from around the world, created many projects and gained amazing experience. Projects include book illustrations (interior and covers), game concept art, promotional materials and multitude of custom projects. I have also some experience in art direction.
My imagination never sleeps and I am always ready to learn new tools, find new techniques, search for new ways to express myself and to fullfil my clients' needs. I am completely self-taught both in digital and traditional art, the latter being mainly oil and watercolor painting as well as sketching to lay down ideas.
I am open for new projects, custom private commissions included.
