A little about me: I'm an artist/father, living in San Diego, California and I've been lucky enough to illustrate professionally for over 20 years. I'm originally from Latvia and in 1978 my family and I immigrated to Canada, this coincidentally is when I started to draw...passionately!
At the ripe-old age of 17, I received a full-tuition scholarship from The Art Institutes International and in 1993, I graduated with Best Portfolio from AIFL in south Florida.
During the course of my career, while living in the US and Sweden, I've gotten to work with some of the top advertising agencies, magazines, publishers and toy companies in America/Europe. Some notable assignments have included creating exclusive branding and character designs for Purina, Hasbro and Burger King. From 2003-2007, I was a monthly-featured contributing artist for Disney publications and in
2008, I helped create a kids virtual online world for Kinder Chocolate, in Italy.
