The thing that draw me to photography it was the magic of the darkroom… The excitement that a picture that you envisioned could appear on a blank paper in seconds! This love and excitement never ceased to burn inside me.
After getting my MBA and working in the marketing departments of large firms for almost a decade, I realized that the only thing that made me happy was the creative process… being creative gave me purpose and a feeling of being free! My passage from the University of Arts in London, LCC helped me to spread my wings and explore a different world of creativity.
However, it was growing up in Greece and in a multicultural family that showed me how to love art, I learnt from my childhood how to appreciate its multiplicity.
Having half my family coming from Western Europe and the rest from Northern-east Asia is like living in a playground of different philosophies and attitudes. I am deeply thankful that I learned how to respect diversity and that the only real thing that matters is love.
I felt loved and this gave me the motive to pay it forward: to being able to show my love unique experiences, real people, true beauty, meaningful moments and genuine emotions.
Art is very important as a mean of expression for me, as I always pursue its presence in my life. Either in the form of pastel sketching or calligraphy, art has given me ways of exploring life and finding its grandeur.
