About me

I have a passion for not only creating beautiful art but crafting beautiful and emotionally engaging images.

I've had my own retouching company for a couple of years. And doing retouching work for over 8 years. I'm looking to start new collaborations with photographers and agencies.

I've been rated as one of the top 200 best digital artists in the world for 2017 by Archive and have been featured in a few of their publications. Also I have won various international advertising awards.

I mainly do more artistic high end print type of projects. I come from 13 years Art Direction background so I can advise the best and fastest way to get the desired results even before shooting.

I work with various photographers and agencies from all over the world.
