Born in 1968 in Corfu I was, from a very young age, impressed by the power and the mystery from the colours of the sea, the movements in the skies and the natural life of the island. For years all these impressions fermented until the feeling and the emotions found their expression on canvas. My first collection “Abyssos” was inspired by the mystery of the unknown deep, the crystal clear waters of the Ionian Sea and my love for the island. My latest work obsessively explores movement, flight, space and energy in relation to the inescapable dynamism of the cosmos. My work has sold in Australia, Belgium, England and Greece.
