Born and raised in Dnipro, Ukraine. In 2010 I moved to the US and started working on my college degree in Graphic Design. Two years later, I got married to an active duty military member and started following him for his assignments. We lived in Japan for three years, which has made a huge impact on my world perception and gave me new inspiration for art. However, I did not pursue art seriously until recently, when the US economy got hit hard by the pandemic.
Having been laid off from a seemingly safe graphic design position, I started looking at new ways to improve and grow. The choice was obvious: expand on something I’m really passionate about, which happened to be concept art and design for games.
I’m currently attending online classes with a former Blizzard artist and hoping to improve quickly enough to make my passion a career.

“Alina in Wonderland” Inspired by a creative photo of a Ukrainian friend of mine.
“Archivist” First more or less successful attempt at character design for an art school project.
This one doesn’t have a name of it’s own. It was a commissioned book cover illustration for book 3 of the Cadogan Series by H.V. Rosemarie.
“Moxxi Halloween Reskin” Taking one of my favorite characters from the Borderlands series, I attempted coming up with a new outfit for her. Halloween themed of course, since it’s October.
“Prop design” The ship was a submission for Artstation’s Lightbox prop design challenge.
“Werehuman” A submission for a mini-challenge we did with fellow art school students.
