Summary

I have studied Fine Arts with traditional and contemporary media throughout my academic training for 6 years in Athens School of Fine Arts , Greece where I obtained my BA degree on visual arts (concentration in painting and sculpture). I have then been awarded the Rector's scholarship for my MA studies on Digital Arts/Visual Arts which lasted 2 years in the University of Arts, London.
Since then, I have been working professionally in various projects such as advertising, video clips, short movies, books, graphic novels, video games and board games, being responsible for the illustrations, animation, and the visual/artistic aspect of each project.

I am currently working as a Lead Designer, Illustrator-Concept Artist and Animator at Para-Bellum Wargames.

My field of expertise is concept art, character design and illustration.
My work also contains: Matte painting, animation, 3D modeling and comic design.
