If you're an artist, what kind of art do you make?

I attended painting classes in Cyprus and in June 1993 i was accepted in the School of Fine Arts and Conservation ''Palazzo Spinelli'' in Florence, where i was specialized in Conservation of Artworks in wood and canvas. Attended the three-year curriculum i graduated in May 1996.
Since 2000 in my own workshop i work in professionalism with painting, crafts and restoration. I worked and gained experience in furniture restoration. I applied different techniques and materials used by all types of art that has experienced so far. .
About my artwork
I creat out of need . Need to express feelings and emotions through Art.
"life is already here, arrived. You are standing on the goal; you are enlightened from very beginning, enlightenment is your nature, it is your source, Enlightenment is not something in future, it is your existence now. become aware of it"
Welcome Stella, The pleasure and honour to connect with you is mine.

The Ivory Tower by definition is a secluded place or sheltered state of being, far removed from the harsh realities of everyday living.
Being a Piscean, the ivory tower ‘’syndrome ‘’ is one of my characteristics. I always want to explore my inner self and recreate that in the outside world through Art. I create out of need. Need to explore and express my feelings and worries by fantasizing so much that at the end I tend to lose touch with the harsh realities. My perception of the world is coloured by my desire to see it in a very particular way. MY WAY! This exhibition is about how I want to see life with my very own eyes! I present my view of the world , coloured in hues and tones far removed from its true reflection.
