I am an aspiring game artist specialising in prop and environment art and always willing to improve and refine my skills. I am creative and ambitious with a talent for thinking outside the box and using various techniques to achieve my goals. As a graduate of Escape Studios I’ve worked within a studio environment utilising teamwork skills to create several projects. I am very familiar with a version control workflow due to my extensive use of Perforce during my studies. I pride myself in providing my skill set to any project regardless of its themes and being able to provide work to the full extent of my abilities.

WHAT IS YOUR DREAM JOB TO START YOUR CAREER WITH?
Games Prop/Environment Artist.
WHAT'S YOUR HOBBY?
Other than gaming, I enjoy tabletop games from really simple ones like "Snakes and Ladders" to more complex ones like "D&D". I also quite enjoy keeping up with e-sports. I like to dabble in a bit of photography every once in a while; sometimes using it as inspiration for my 3D work.
WHAT MAKES YOU UNIQUE?
As a bilingual person, coming from a humble mining town in Poland, I've always had a unique outlook on things in life. I'm extremely proud of the things I've accomplished and will always strive to improve myself whenever a chance occurs.
WHAT ARE YOUR BIGGEST STRENGTHS AND WEAKNESSES?
I'm always open to new techniques, willing to implement them in my workflow. I struggle to learn things from pure visual stimuli, I need to get my hands on something to truly learn how it works. I have a habit of being too self-critical which in the past led to a lot of burnout, I've since worked on celebrating every achievement no matter if big or small and this has truly helped me in not only appreciating the work I do but also the contributions of everyone on my team.
DESCRIBE YOUR DREAM JOB.
A prop/environment artist in a welcoming and friendly studio full of like-minded people always willing to lend each other a hand.
WHICH GAME INSPIRED YOU THE MOST TO CHOOSE THIS CAREER PATH?
"The Witcher series". Knowing that such a fantastic game series came from my own country really inspired me to strive in this industry. I hope that one day I could be a part of something that inspires the next generation of artist that were like me.
WHY DO YOU DESERVE A GREATER SHARE OF SPACE IN THE YEARBOOK?
To fit my whole class in one photo! Everyone here deserves a special mention as we've all achieved so much throughout this course.
