The Netherlands,  Breda NHTV Breda University of Applied Sciences,  International Game Architecture and Design,  July 03, 2015
I am a 25 years old 3D visual art student from Germany and I am currently finishing my last year of studies in the Netherlands. I have an affinity towards stylized worlds and I am a huge fan of games that make use of fantastical environments. I love bringing worlds to life no matter what scope. I create stylized art but always try to implement the latest tools and developments of the industry to not loose track of the rapidly evolving nature of our work field. I love what I do and looking forward I am pretty sure that I will never stop learning. .
