I am an artist based in Greensboro, North Carolina (U.S.). I graduated from SCAD (Savannah College of Art and Design) with a BFA, majoring in sequential art with a minor in storyboarding, in June 2019.
I have been drawing since I was a kid. I fell in love with both American and Russian cartoons. I was inspired by their stories and often created stories based on those films and productions.
Since then, I’ve decided to pursue the career of visual storytelling. My biggest influences on my work are the webcomic Namesake by Megan Lavey-Heaton and Isabelle Melançon, both graphic novels The Odyssey and Dracula illustrated by Ben Caldwell, and Alphonse Mucha’s fine art pieces.
My goal is to gain enough professional expertise and experience to publish a series of Slavic folk tales/fairytales. I will follow where there are jobs available, and continue to develop my ideas through this site, going to conventions, freelance contracts, and through funding-based platforms. I hope to inspire my viewers and readers with the stories I tell.
My artistic hobbies include creating original pieces made of mediums such as painting (watercolor, gouache, and acrylic), photography, jewelry, polymer clay, fine art (soft pastels, pencils, charcoal, and ink), and crafting materials (anything that be put together with a hot glue gun and rubber cement).
My non-art hobbies include going out with friends, listening to music, dancing, watching movies and tv shows, and dressing up.
