I have always been involved with art as I was raised in a house of painters.From an early age I became interested in comics, cartoons and animation. My childhood was spent copying illustrations from books I owned or drawing my own stories.
After graduating from the Fine Arts High School, I entered Anadolu University’s Department of Cartoon & Animation. During my student life I had the opportunity to participate in different festivals and competitions and won various awards. One of these awards allowed me to study at the New York Film Academy in 2011. Then, after studying graphic arts for one year at the Krakow Fine Arts Academy, I completed an internship in the gaming industry in Hamburg.
Since 2014 I have worked on different projects in the comics, illustration and animation industry. I’m living in Lisbon and continue my work as a freelancer.
