b.: 1962  •  gender: female

She lives and works in Berlin since 2001.

She studied Fine Arts in Texas and Oakland-San Francisco, USA  and received a 4-year scholarship for a PhD study she started in Madrid.

She uses various means of artistic expression such as painting, sculpture, installations and mixed media, which she modifies accordingly. Her voyages are a major source of inspiration. This gives her art an experiential character, since it entails a documentation of her experiences. Itʼs about an artistic journal, where she collects various realistic motifs and elements, which she uses in her work, creating an abstract reality through which she perceives her environment.

She presents her work in solo exhibitions in Cyprus, Greece, the Netherlands and Spain and has participated in many group exhibitions in Cyprus, Greece, Spain, France, the U.K. and Germany.

In 2001 she represented Cyprus in the 21Ist Biennale of Alexandria, where her work was awarded an Honorary Mention.

"In my works, my aim is to reveal the beauty of every situation I am experiencing, as this has been filtered and stored in my memory. My art constitutes a record of the journeys I make, be they the places I travel to, or internal spaces, indicating personal growth."
