Summary

I'm CG artist, worked as freelance from 2000.
Live and work in St.Gallen, Switzerland.

My style is mixed realism, fantasy, sensuality and fun. I have created digital illustrations and covers for international editorials, advertising agencies, publishing houses, and magazines at 5 continents. Take part in numerous international and national events.

In 2016 I was honoured to get Corel Painter Master ELITE Award.

Since 2003 my works are regularly included in the books of the best digital art in the world EXPOSÉ, EXOTIQUE, PAINTER (BALLISTIC Publishing, Australia)

In 2004, Norma Editorial of Barcelona, Spain has published a compilation of my Digital art works, called INSOMNIA, which is very popular in purchasing in European Union and USA.

I am official beta-tester and participant of advertising and promo campaigns of Corel Painter software from 2007. My work was used for the cover and advertising campaign for Corel Painter XI box. In 2006-2008 my digital paintings were presented at the exhibition, opening international ADAPT ART Conference in Canada.

Since 2007 I work as the regular artist/ columnist in ImagineFX magazine (UK)
