Summary

My name is Ekaterina Maximova, I’m an Artist and Animator. Here you can find my reels and artworks.
As far back as I can remember, I always wanted to be an Artist, and I always knew one day I will. That’s why I made a decision to study Arts. And now my experience counts more than 5 years. During this period I occupied different positions such as Animator, Lead-animator, Artist, Storyboarder, BG and Characters designer. I worked in game industry and took part in feature movies. Most of all I like 2D animation and planning to continue my career in this field.

At the moment I'm looking opportunities to work in a studio.
