The Hug

The Kiss

The Touch

Together

I was born in Athens, but grew up in Thessaloniki. I graduated from the French school of Thessaloniki “Kalamari”.

I studied hotel management in Germany and made career in tourism.

The painting has always been my passion. I have been painting since my childhood. My mentors  in painting are two important painters, Natalia Thomaidis and Kostas Aronis, both living in Thessaloniki. Since 2020 I use also digital painting, which opened to me new paths in painting.

Since June 2016, I participated in several group exhibitions in Greece,in Paris, in Vienna,in Rome and Istanbul.

I am a member of the “Painters Club of Thessaloniki and North Greece” (SKETVE).
