I teach in the Digital Art area on Udemy. I want you to be confident that I can deliver the best training there is, so below is some of my background in the Digital Art Field.

Professional Background

Professionally, I am a digital artist, graphic designer and a photographer with 20 years experience working in the Graphic Design industry. That consists of working full time for design studios in Poland, Ireland and Malta and independently as an artist, photographer and freelance designer.

I have received formal training at the Eugeniusz Geppert Academy of Art and Design in Wroclaw, Poland and graduated as a Master of Fine Arts in 2003.

Along the way I have learnt best industry practices and developed my own creative techniques. If you are curious about my portfolio, feel free to have a look at the commercial design work and personal projects in the last Section of this Course.

My Fine Art photography prints are available at several international fine art galleries, amongst others at Asia Contemporary Art Buyer and Saatchi Art. I am an active contributor at many stock agencies including the prestigious world’s largest stock photo collection - Alamy and Stockimo.

I have also self published three photo books with Blurb.

Links to my professional portfolio are available in the last Lecture of the Course.


To sum up, I am absolutely and utterly passionate about photography and Digital Art and I am looking forward to sharing my passion and knowledge with you!
