I have focussed on Animation over the last four years, coming from Illustration and Fine Arts background. I am a professional artist of academic training and more than 10 years of freelance experience, working in versatile media. I work with both traditional and digital tools, in particular seeking to achieve collaboration between the two in 2D animation. I am a big fan of aesthetics with passion for detail and high-quality craft (which I can demonstrate on real examples and awards received recently). In the process of animation, my favourite stages are character and background design.
I have a First Class Honours degree (B.A.) in Animation from the University of Westminster (UK, 2017), and M.A. in art criticism and art history from the National Academy of Fine Art and Architecture (Ukraine, 2013).
My professional experience to date spans: creative work in animation (both independent and commercial), illustration and visual arts (exhibited in Ukraine and Brazil); art criticism and reviews (mostly research on independent animation and classic art).
I assisted in production of several animation films as part of my internship work with the Royal College of Art in 2015 – 2016, including an award-winning animation film (British Animation Awards-2016 Best Student Film (Postgraduate)). My independent experimental animation was shortlisted for the CutOut Fest in Mexico (2016).
I currently work as a freelancer in London.
