Ekaterina Shapovalova

Lead Artist

Ekaterina (Rin) Shapovalova is one of our artists from Russia. Rin originally studied architecture at University, but instead of continuing with the degree, she chose to pursue a career as a Concept Artist. 

In 2011 Rin worked on the Allods Online MMORPG, learning a lot about game development and working in a studio environment. After 5 years Rin became a freelancer, working as a Concept Artist and Illustrator as well as doing an art mentorship. Rin also worked as an art director on an indie project.

In 2018, Rin and her partner moved to Cambridge. Looking for a change from freelancing to working in a studio, Rin met Emrah. Rin is extremely proud to say that she was the first full-time Artist to join Mooncolony and has been a big part of the studio’s growth, excited to see what a great team of professionals it has become. 

Like most of our team, Rin loves video games and embraces the fact that she has 149 days of playtime in World of Warcraft! Living in the UK has also allowed her to step into bird photography and doesn’t miss an opportunity to go out with a camera.
