Artist | Professional | Traditional Art
Canada
Alias: Rachel*Kaya / R*K / Ray
Full Name: Only appears on personal invoices (and is too long to be either properly pronounced or spelled)
Occupation: Graphic artist, illustrator, 3d modeler, texture artist.
Work Status: Available for freelance and commission work.

I am an artist, geek, blogger and an entrepreneur. I live in beautiful Toronto, Canada where nature and the urban theme add up to perfect blend of inspiration.

A bit of history, - I was born in Kiev, Ukraine and studied traditional arts since early years. Everything started with me drawing on walls, fridge and other surfaces which I was not suppose to go anywhere near with markers or paint :) When my parents finally had enough and took away my "toys" I found a new medium for painting - Mom's nail polish! Almost immediately after the minor punishment the markers were returned into my possession and in order to keep the house safe my parent decided to get me busy with as many art clubs as possible. Later I attended The State Art School of Ukraine where I gained serious training. Oils and watercolors were my passion, but after moving to Toronto Canada in '97 my interest switched to digital creativity and I attended digital media and arts specialized collegiate better known in Toronto as DMCI. As I applied for a co-op program I was instead hired by BAK Imaging Inc. a graphics and print firm where I was suppose to learn and gain experience of the real world. There started my early professional life. Few years later my two dimensional creativity progressed to 3D animation and motion graphics and I graduated Seneca College MAYA Animation program in 2004.

Currently I offers a broad range of creative services in variety of software and mediums to clients all over the world. To mention few, - design consulting, graphic and web design, 3d -modeling, texturing and rigging, digital and traditional illustration and retouching.

I apologize for declining your request to be a groupie @ #europeans. Your profile says you live in Canada, thus I thought you were Canadian.

If you re-apply to be a groupie, I or someone else will accept your request. :)
