My Approach

“Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.” – Pablo Picasso

Art has always lived inside me. It is what I do for a living, it is my activism, my social outreach and my passion.

I was born in Russia, but have lived in South Africa since I was a teenager. I studied painting and design at the National School of the Arts in Johannesburg and continued my studies by obtaining a Fine Arts diploma from Wits Technikon.

After starting out doing freelance murals, backdrops and illustrations, I moved into digital art. Over the past few years, I have specialised in illustrating, designing and animating educational material, online games, books, film, comics and news stories. I have also worked with advertising agencies.

I am fluent in the following programmes: Indesign, Photoshop, Illustrator, Aftereffects and Flash. When it comes to traditional art, there is virtually no medium I haven’t worked with.

I am extremely passionate about the world, which helps with my work.
My career has taken me from painting walls to sculpting theatre props and from illustrating for one of South Africa’s most respected independent news organisations to designing book covers.

If there is one thing I know about my life, it’s this: I am incredibly lucky. And I am ready to share my energy and creativity.
