About the artist
I create artwork for video games, book covers, and personal projects.
I worked at video game studios and currently focus on freelancing and personal art.
I have been working professionally since 1996.
For freelancing rates, availability and other questions
contact me by email.
I was born in the early 1970s in Poland.
Although I have been attracted to visual arts since early age,
I first started creating digital artwork in
1993 after several years of fascination with Sci-Fi and Fantasy
book covers and computer graphics from Amiga demos
and games. In mid 1990s I got into 3D rendering, created a website and started posting my
renderings online. They turned out to be better than expected so eventually I started
freelancing. My career really took off in 1997 when I was hired to work full time as a 3D artist on
The Longest Journey, a PC adventure game developed at Funcom in Norway. Later I moved to
USA to work on Unreal 2 and other games at Legend Entertainment. Since 2004
I have been working on a freelance basis while also doing personal artwork.
The gallery contains examples of my commercial and personal work.
I reside in Denmark.
