I am a sculptor based in Tinos Island, Greece.
Many of my pieces have a hybrid nature. Every experience that I have is relevant to my work. I get inspiration from everything. Every object that I make, and every new idea that I have, relate to other ideas and objects of my past and present. The things that I make go through a process of transformation. My objects come into existence because of my need to create.
Currently I divide my time between teaching students at the Preparatory and Professional School of Fine Arts in Panormos Tinos (Π.Ε.Σ.Κ.Τ.Π.Τ.), where I work as the director of the School, and creating new works in my studio.
