It's all about visual storytelling
Although academically trained for Biotechnology, I chose to follow my passion and have become a digital artist. But having fundamental understanding of basic science has always helped me a lot to develop my skills in this world of visual effects.
From very childhood I have been passionate about science fiction stories, action- adventure, fantasy and also comic books and used to live in that world of fantasy within my head. So now, when I am actually creating that world of fantasy everyday, I enjoy every moment and feel fortunate to be in this field.
Apart from matte painting or concept painting, I love photography.
