    A few words about me..

 

I was born in England but was raised in Greece.  Today I spend my time between Greece and Canada.  

I found out about my artistic character when I had a lifechanging experience in 2001.  A car accident left me with extreme burn injuries on my body but extreme determination to survive. 

Accepting my new reality and scarred body required a lot of willpower, but I wasn't ready to give up without a fight. I was struggling to find ways to use my injured hands again, and with my mothers help and guidance, I challenged myself with embroidery, mosaic and painting. 

I have been painting ever since my injuries and although creating was hurting me physically, it was the only thing that soothed me mentally and helped me go through some really dark moments, when life was hard and the pain unbearable. 

 

I am a self taught artist with passion to bring life to blank canvasses using my emotions and love for nature. Trees fascinate me for all the similarities they share with humans. On some of my paintings you will find materials like real bark and pieces of wood represent life,  and metal pieces that represent strength..  

 

Thank you for visiting my site, I would love to hear from you...

 

 

 My humble burning desire is to share

  ..my passion for life,

  ..my love for the world and my optimism for the future.

  

   "It can be the sun setting or rising

   ...a leaf of a tree against the wind.

   ...a child laughing or an adult shedding a tear..

   

  I would say,

  life inspires me because it is so precious

  that I just want to hold on to moments forever."
