Hi! I’m Ilona and I make art for games.
I have studied visual arts for most of my life. After graduating from an art-oriented high school, I went on to study visual art in Pekka Halonen Academy. Afterwards I studied 3D animation and visualization in Metropolia University of Applied Sciences.
For 7 years, I have brought artistic vision to three influential gaming start-ups, one of which I was a founding member of. I have also given game-development classes in schools and youth activity centers.
I have years of experience across different roles, from creating approachable graphics for heavily stylized casual games, to being lead artist for a high-end PC game. I have a special interest towards virtual reality and its applications on PC and on mobile.
I am a gamer and a game developer, and I love bringing my creativity and vision to projects that are ambitious as well as fun!
