Hello, I am a Illustrative Designer based in Bristol, UK.
I have worked in the creative field for more than 18 years as a Graphic Designer/Artworker, after my first Masters Degree in Fine Art and Design.
Also, I completed an MA degree in Media Graphic Arts at UWE, Bristol (2012).
Since then I have been working on a variety of commercial and corporate assignments - magazines, brochures, books, calendars, logotypes, illustrations and others, individually and as part of a team.
I’ve worked with clients and colleagues in the UK and abroad.
I am available for commissions and collaborations to work in-house or remotely.
A little information about me
My first memory of falling in love with fine art and design were books - different stories, cultural legends and myths about people, flora and fauna and lost cities through centuries, captured by beautiful documentaries and photographs.
A collection of all this visual knowledge has had a big influence on me and captured my vast and vivid imagination. Art became my passion. From that point my sketchbook is always with me.
From a very young age I started to read. My first book was Winnie the Pooh stories, a collection of stories by author A. A. Milne, with beautiful illustrations by E. H. Shepard.
That was it - I wanted to be an Illustrator and to create my own vision in the way I see the world.
Art Deco and Rococo styles have a big influence on me.
My paintings have been shown at many fine art exhibitions, including four personal shows.
My work includes private and public collections in the USA and Europe, including UK, Ireland, Sweden, Russia, Germany, Czech Republic and Bulgaria and have been acquired as part of office interior developments.
