“I believe in diversity. Coming from a creative family composed of painters, illustrators, draughtsmen and writers as well as skilled craftsmen, I grew up in an environment of creativity and tools. So, ever since the age of I-don’t-know-how-old-I-was-back-then, I have a strong affection not only towards creating artwork, but also a deep interest in the technologies that are used in the process. What started out as doodling as a child, moved over to painting great canvases as a teenager and became a serious love affair with all things digital. As a professional graphic designer, having concluded my studies of communications design in early 2013, I find it particularly difficult to categorize myself. Even though I am trying hard to find a definition of my work here on this very website, I think that the main and most important aspects of my work are creativity and concept. Being permanently on the experimental side of thinking and creating, I seek to add to my skills with every piece I begin. Learning-By-Doing, this awfully overused term, applies to me just as well as Doing-By-Learning. The unison of knowledge and skill provides me with inspiration and a broad foundation to be used as a starting point for any kind of project. I see myself neither as a graphic designer, nor an artist, writer or whatever. I’m a creative person, creativity is my Power Unlimited.”
