  • Berliner Technische Kunstschule Communication Design


I got interested in digital painting when I studied at the Berliner Technische Kunstschule (BTK)in Berlin. During the 4th semester I decided to take the course "Digital Illustration" and there I learned the basics of working with Photoshop. Afterwards it was just constantly learning and exploring new ways of creating.
Now I am working as a freelance concept artist for over 3 years. I am very passionate about creating art and new worlds.I specialized myself in creating environment concept art, space art, background art, experimental art. I did promotional concept art and asset art for a medieval surviving game, space art/skyboxes for the rts game Shallow Space, artworks for book covers, museum background art and more. I've been featured in art magazines like Advanced Photoshop and 2DArtist. In my free time I enjoy creating personal artworks and exploring new painting techniques.
