Hello, my name is Tessa Geniets. I'm from the Netherlands and from the year 1985.
I've been drawing for years and lately moved on from traditional painting to digital art after finishing my education (Graphic Design) and started to follow the course 'Cinematic Design' from Evenant Design.
The programs i use are: Photoshop, illustrator, indesign and Hitfilm Express. I'm aspiring to start 3D-art aswell but, although i have my preferences, i'm always open to working with others programs.
- Graphic Design (LOI Netherlands)
- Cinematic Design (Evenant Design)
- Concept artist & illustrator ((private)commissions, expositions, collaborations).
- Freelance commercial design artist (Local companies looking for a creative input in works like menu's, outdoor commercials, flyers, photography etc). But also worldwide work if no physical product is needed.
I'm always looking for opportunities and like to be challenged. I'm up for basically anything new as long as it can be done (mostly) from where i live. Before taking on art i used to work in companies that requered advanced people-skills (restaurant, catering, mentally disabled care) . Communication and thinking along won't be any problem.
I been a freelancer from the start, taking on jobs like commercial art and design for local companies. Mostly practical things like menu's, outdoor commercials, flyers etc, but all with an artistic approach. Alongside this i started to educate myself more in enviromental- and creature design whilst also organizing expositions.
Nowdays i also make youtube video's entertaining people with the art i make (timelapse) talking about the piece i made, often including information about the creature or landscape i made. A course through Skillshare is in the make.
