Since I can remember I’ve been drawing. At college I’ve studied Graphic Design, but soon decided to change course and pursue a career as an artist.
My first break and one of my first gigs was doing illustrations for Alderac Entertainment Collectible Card Games.
In the following years, I began working has an illustrator for editorial and marketing, and occasionally working in projects for videogames, cinema and TV.
Having already won some contests, in 2011 I was awarded 1st and 3rd places with two illustrations for the international contest Share One Planet “Wild Animals CG Art Elites Competition".
My art has been showcased in various books and magazines, such as the Expose books, The Big Book of Contemporary Illustration, ImagineFx, Advanced Photoshop and 2D Artist along with many others.
It has been almost 15 years since I’ve started working professionally, I specialize in illustration for editorial and marketing, videogame art, I have also taught illustration and digital art, and have lectured and at numerous lectures and conferences.
