I was born in Belgrade, Serbia, in 1991. For as long as I can remember, my favourite toys (besides LEGO bricks) were pencils and papers. My first drawings were depicting heroes and villains from Asterix and Obelix comics, and then I had an epiphany – my parents have started reading The Hobbit to me when I was 6, one chapter per evening. That opened whole new horizons for me, and myriad fantasy worlds have continued captivating my attention alongside Middle-earth.

I am proficient with using various traditional and digital media in painting, but my trusty pencils and oil paints are my favourites. I also love painting characters, adding emotions, realism or quirkiness and making them feel real.

I used to work in a gaming studio, but now I have mostly switched to publishing – novels, RPG publications and board games.

I can make the characters for your books come to life with my brushstrokes!

My list of clients includes Paizo Publishing, Onyx Path Publishing, Alcyon Creative and many others.
