A little boy's desire to draw things, and especially people, turned into a lifelong career.

I received my formal art education in Kiev, Ukraine and graduated with a master's degree in graphic design and book illustration.

I immigrated to the United States in 1979.

In this country I worked first as a commercial artist and then as a computer game artist. My first love, however, was painting in traditional media, which is my main focus now.

On this website you can also see my artworks created with the aid of computer graphics software: PS, 3DS MAX, PAINTER and others.
