About

I am a visual artist based in Athens

I was born in Athens, in 1971. I have studied Business (BA Hons) and Management (MSc) in U.K., followed by studies in Philosophy, and Drawing and Painting in Athens. Before turning to art full-time, I worked in advertising and for the ATHENS 2004 Olympic Games Organising Committee, while also managing a privately-owned boutique hotel in Naxos.

Since 2011, I have been systematically engaged in painting, presented my work in 10 solo and over 80 group exhibitions and art projects, in art galleries, museums and contemporary art fairs in Greece and abroad, including Athens, Thessaloniki, Mykonos, Paros, Santorini, Naxos, Cyprus, New York, London, Paris, Rome, Venice, Copenhagen, Barcelona, Tokyo, etc.  In 2013, I was awarded first prize at the Mitteleuropa Prix International Art Competition by the Ufofabrik Contemporary Art Gallery in Italy.

I consider myself an impulsive artist and am interested in painting what I feel, not what I see. The canvas is a space where my mind can roam completely free. I create directly on the canvas, with no prior rough sketch, guided by purely exploratory processes. Abstract painting is my inner soul-searching journey that leads me to rendering human emotions in colours and shapes through an array of techniques. 

My artwork is part of private collections in Greece and abroad. It has been exhibited at the Athens War Museum, the OTE Group Telecommunications Museum and the Copelouzos Art Museum in Athens, as well as the Carris Museum in Lisbon.

I live and work in Athens.
