A few words about me and my philosophy of arts

In early years of life I became aware of the godsend which allows me to spend my time to eternalize the beauty of creation in art. My working materials consisted of everything I had in my disposal including paper, wood or mirror.

At the age of 10, I’ve participated in a drawing competition and won a scholarship to the school of arts in Athens.

After school, I uncompromised my artistic vocation and worked many years in interior design as well as in the decorating floristic. Additionally I kept educating myself by seminars. I consider myself grateful to live a fulfilling way of life.

However I never abandoned the painting, my true love of my life. In the year 1998 I had the opportunity to turn my passion to my profession and gave private lessons in fine arts.

In 2014 I had the opportunity to study at the University of Athens and so I learned again. This further education was focused on photography. Also this spectrum of art I began to love.

Early 2015 I attended the school of painting in Helidoni. This area is also the location of the workshop of the famous artist Christos Leloudi.
Along this way I started to observe the environment of my area Ierissos from an artistic perspective with the aim to broaden my horizons also in my active surroundings.
In September 2015 I became member of the association of arts in Northern Greece, where I teach until today (drawing, watercolor, color). My way of art is still very much influenced by my mentor Christos Leloudis. I also teach abstract techniques by the use of acrylic paint on canvas and various kinds of mixing techniques.
Personally I prefer working with oil, acrylic, oil-pastel, soft-pastels charcoal, wood carving and copper-wire constructions.

My first and second solo exhibition I realized in June 2015 and in August 2016 in Ierissos.
My first and second joint exhibition happened 2015 in the Faculty of Chelidoni in Thessaloniki as well as in the Association of Arts in Lagyna, Thessaloniki in 2016.

Art is my purpose of life and I thank God for the gift to align my life on it. This philosophy comes along with the ambition of personal development, the cultivation of visualization and permanent progress.
In my opinion art can not evolve in isolation but needs collegiality for development.

Further activities in my life
I earn my livelihood in an outfitter for children. The shop is located n my village Ierissos.
I was member of the trade association in Ierissos for 5 years, keeping the position as treasurer. During the period of 2003 – 2005 was elected member of the Merchant Federation of the Macedonian Thrace. From 2004 to 2007 I worked voluntarily as secretary in the cultural association of Ierissos.

Dancing also in an important part of this association and dancing in a Latin dance group is a passion of mine which is worth to be mentioned.
