I have my roots in traditional art and animation and started to use the computer as an artistic tool in 2000 while I was working for film/ advertising and design agencies as an illustrator and animator. The endless opportunities of working digitally fascinated me from the start and I began to improve my technical skills in painting my pencil drawn illustrations digitally step by step. My artwork is based on pencil and ink illustrations which still is the most creative part of the time- consuming process of developing a digital painting. I am using a cintiq/ wacom as a canvas where the pen is my paintbrush having numerous layers of different shades. It is very comparable with working on a traditional painted piece.
