The lesson I loved the most at the high school was Ethics, where I admired different interpretations of the world by philosophers. This interest led me to major in Ethics in the University.

Wimbledon School of Art, UK - Foundation Art & Design


Following the advise of shoolmate, I decided to study in the UK just for 1 year. There I found different approaches to illustration, which awakened my desire of creation!

University of Brighton, UK - BA(Hons)Illustration


After all, I stayed in the UK another 3 years to study. Now that I think about it, it was such a luxury time to spend days and nights on creation in full facility. During the last school year, I started bringing portfolio to the companies and began my career as an illustrator.
