Summary

Studied photographer, self-taught 3D artist born in Czech republic, currently based in London.
I've been passionate about visual art since childhood. I got into photography and studied at prof. Miroslav Vojtechovsky's atelier at FUD UJEP. At this time I started to experiment with post-production and play around with first CG renders for student competitions and personal series. After finishing school I worked on commercials mainly for automotive industry as well as art prints and posters. Couple years later I was busy making animated cartoons and a feature movie at Prague PFX Studio. I moved to UK in 2017 to pursue my dream of working on Hollywood productions and have been working here as an artist at VFX houses (Dneg, ILM) since.
I am hard working, passionate and continuously striving to improve my skills.
