About Me

ctan2

Hello, my name is Lukasz (aka C'tan) and I live in Cracow, Poland. My journey with miniatures start probably in childhood where I was building model kits, mostly planes and tanks. During long time of my life I worked as a professional graphic designer and web designer.

For me painting miniatures is still perfecting techniques, sharing experiences, gaining new knowledge and exchanging it with other painters. I really appreciate lot of experience recieved from my friends that made me a better painter. I love my hobby!
