Hello! My name is Courtney Balousek. I currently live in Baltimore, MD, but am originally from a small town in beautiful rural Pennsylvania. I grew up on a hobby farm, and love animals of every shape and size. In my spare time, I love to read, play video games, craft, and garden. I have a passion for human and animal anatomy, and enjoy dog or bird watching in the park or on the water.
I am a 2D and 3D Digital Artist who specializes in game art. I currently work at Shadow Health, Inc. as an artist, bringing virtual patients to life in educational nursing simulations.
In May 2017, I graduated from Rochester Institute of Technology’s Game Design and Development major. I tried hard to specialize in video game art and found my calling in making organic assets. I particularly love creating imaginary creatures, but I also excel at animals, plants, and people. There’s just something about bringing an animal or creature to life that nothing else can beat!
