There's much to see here. So, take your time, look around. I hope you enjoy my site and take a moment to drop us a line.
I grew up on a tiny mountain top village on a small Greek island in the middle of the Aegean, surrounded by the endless blues of the sea. I left that island to come to New York, to study art and be submersed in the pulsing, high paced energy of the city. While life took over, and I settled into an office job, I never stopped painting and sketching. Many afternoons were spent walking around the city, sketch book in hand, drawing out the people and landscapes I saw, and their interactions and expressions within that space. The pandemic changed all of that. While cloistered away from everything familiar, painting became a way to transcend the physical lockdown, and relive those moments. Painting naturescapes reminded me of the beauty that surrounds us, even if we were not living that now. Mixing and layering the blues of the sea and sky brought calmness and openness. A simple painting of figures strolling the beach brought a smile to my face. The pandemic made me rethink life. The office job melted away and art became a lifeline and it revived me during this extremely difficult and strenuous time. I now spend my time between upstate and Long Island...The themes and figures depicted in my art are always hopeful and uplifting.
