    About me

    Professional 2D animator and motion graphics designer with strong illustration skills and capacity to adapt to a variety of visual styles and techniques. With over 10 years’ experience in the creative industry, I have worked on a wide range of projects ranging from illustrating book covers to designing games and animating in both 2D and 3D, including a few award winning shorts and commercials, and I have gathered a significant number of awards in illustration. I have experience working in-house for various studios and creative agencies, as well as freelance work for clients in UK and abroad.

    Having started drawing at a very young age, I was already training as a professional illustrator by the time I was 11. Soon after, I started participating in national and international cartoon festivals and competitions, and became one of the best known cartoonists of Romania. Easily adaptable to different styles and with excellent illustration skills, I eventually extended my area of expertise to design, motion graphics, and 2D frame by frame animation. I am now able to work on a variety of projects from storyboarding and concept art, to covering the whole process of animation single-handedly.

    The Adobe Suite is second nature to me with 10 years’ experience in Photoshop and Illustrator and 5 in After Effects and Flash.

    I have a particular interest in character animation, gaming, and digital education. I am currently working on developing an animated series. I spend my free time creating and directing animated shorts and comics.
