Born in 1992 in Moscow, Russia. Since 2022 based in a small seaside town in Turkey. 

 

I work as a freelance illustrator, which is in the same proportion tough and exciting. 

I do all sorts of things and a bunch of styles,  forever looking for *the Style*

to settle down for, but hey, it's the journey that matters!


In my spare time I sketch what I see around, learn Turkish, or spend time with my dog

Kirpi that I found here on a street. He was very poorly, but he's doing great now!

 

 

I will be glad to help you with your project, don't hesitate to message :)

 

I am currently in search of an agency to represent me,

if you are an agent that might be interested, please drop me a note, thanks!

I have ridiculously  long academical art education and used to paint before focusing on graphics, which left me with vast experience in analogue techniques and confidence with drawing almost any subject.

 

Although I use variety of styles for different projects, My main style is dynamic, detailed, semi-realistic with a touch of traditional materials.

 

I work with media, small businesses and private customers.

I'm fine working directly with a client or as a part of creative team. 

 

My English is fluent (although recently been broken by learning Turkish, haha)
