Nefeli Chrysanthou

Visual Development Artist

I am an experienced Designer with an innate passion for storytelling, filmmaking, and animation.

Through my career I have developed a diverse skillset having worked on various client projects including 2D and 3D TV series and films.

 

I come from a traditional academic painting background which has helped acquire expert knowledge of key principles such as colour, composition, and perspective.

I also love to invent my own stories by drawing inspiration from personal experiences, mythology, and history. Lastly, in my spare time I continue to hone my storytelling and design skills by drawing in my sketchbook, reading fiction novels and attending life drawing sessions.
