About the artist

that's me I work mainly within the Sci-Fi, Fantasy and Space genres in video games, but I also do CD and book cover illustration. I worked at video game studios in Norway and USA, and currently live in Denmark focusing on freelancing and personal art. I have been working professionally since 1996. For freelancing rates, availability and other questions please contact me by email.

I was born in early 1970s in Poland. Although I have been attracted to visual arts since early age, I first started creating digital images in 1993 after several years of fascination with SciFi 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, 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 and also doing personal artwork. The gallery contains examples of my commercial and personal work.
