Hello! :) I am 23 years old and live in Warsaw, Poland. For my official employment, a “regular” full time job – I currently work as a media planner at MPG media agency. I know – not too artsy... In fact, it’s an extremely analytic, number-crunching job. Maybe it doesn’t fit well with the image but I like the challenge the contrast is giving me.

I started painting since my early childhood and treated it as a hobby for many years, never seeing it as a potential career path. At the age of 15, I moved into digital media out of curiosity and will to experiment, still with no intention to become professional. However, soon after I discovered all the possibilities standing before a CG artist and became tempted. At the same time, however, I still wanted to try other things, such as something connected to advertising or marketing. In the end, I decided to take the middle path and am doing both things at once.

Basically every artist has their own specific way of working. I work mainly in Photoshop, with highly transparent brushes and apply layers of paint gradually, as it lets me control the outcome from the very beginning. Aside from that, I always paint on 4-5 layers tops and try to stick to as few basic custom brushes in Photoshop. Basically, my main tools is a regular airbrush and a Hard Round brush with its edges ragged. Depending on the occasion, I can also use more detail-oriented custom brushes, such as photo textures and the like.

Illustrating I do out of passion. Currently I work as a cover illustrator for a few German publishing houses as well as prepare tutorials for Future Publishing’s ImagineFX magazine on a nearly monthly basis.
There is no hidden message about it really, I just find women a much more graceful subject to paint! Lately I have been expanding my horizons a bit, however, painting not only men, but also animalistic characters. Some of that art should soon be uploaded to my online galleries!
