My parents supported my talent and enrolled me in a children art school. Then I joined an amateur art studio. My next step was a professional art school, graduating with a BA degree.
My hobbies became a passion and, finally, a career in my 20's. I painted portraits and church murals, designed posters and advertisements.
When the graphic software for personal computers has become available and accessible, I knew I have found a new instrument to apply to my former hobbies. I've learned to design books and magazines, create digital illustrations and collages.
Then I bought my first digital camera and started with taking lots of pictures like everyone. But due to my arts education and background, I went from documenting the surroundings, people and objects, and playing with lighting and textures, to creating my own photo-reality. I learned to build objects in 3D-editors and animate them.
Nothing visual is strange to me: graphic and web design, photography and 3D-visualizations. But most of all, I like to make drawings.
Why support meI always try to do a perfect job. Usually, it takes pretty long time to make a really cool artwork. It would be great, if each of my artworks was properly paid by a client. Unfortunately, it's far from real life.
Becoming my Patron, you may help me to produce more new eye-catching images. In my turn, I'll share the secrets of my kitchen, I'll demonstrate the working process, and I may even consider your wishes and suggestions to new image concepts.
