Hello! I'm Ivona - a Houdini TD, with a diverse artistic and technical background. My experience is in high-end VFX for commercials, episodic and Films. I work procedurally and find the most efficient way to get things done. I believe a CG artist must be creatively inventive, technically proficient and have a strong visual language to communicate with the pixels brought into this world. It is energy, a positive attitude, adaptability, and exceptional self-motivation that always help me fit in at a workplace and contribute to the team.

I love the intersection of innovation and science together and using technology as a bridge to achieving stunning visuals on the screen. My dedication to a lifetime is pushing the boundaries of photorealism and be a valuable contributor to the creative community!
