We all have our own stories to tell…
I am a mixed media artist from Greece and I live and work in Southsea, UK.
Although my public presence in the Arts is very recent I have been working with mixed media for the past 5 years. I have been experimenting with a variety of materials until recently to find what will express me. There are two things that I always enjoyed, stories and collecting anything of any interest. Since I was little I would be fascinated with storytelling, from reading a book to be told mythological or religious tales in school. It was only natural after years of searching for a suitable medium and inspiration, to put the two together and create my own version of those stories as well as my own. I create intricate pieces based on mythology-philosophy, poetry, the materials I have in my hands at that time or my personal experiences and thoughts. I use collage and assemblage techniques to compose my pieces with the narrative an integral part of the work weaved throughout. All materials used are found, thrown out or discarded. Reusing these pieces gives them a new life and purpose.

The Light boxes are an on-going project using found photographic slides of all sizes and origins. Came as an accident and developed into an obsession, working with found slides has given me the opportunity to create little 3 dimensional worlds.
