ABOUT THE ARTIST

I grew up in Surrey, UK, and studied in London. In 1994 I moved to Athens, Greece, where I continue to live. For many years I worked as an Interior Designer, and painting remained a hobby.

In 2000 I became a mother and worked part-time teaching painting and design. I began painting seriously 1 ½ years ago and found a renewed passion for it.

As a hobby my paintings were always abstract, often expressing intense moments of emotions. Now I feel compelled to capture vivid moments in nature, painting the things we see everyday, but only take a moment to appreciate!

When I paint I lose myself in the colours, and the brush stokes, it gives me great satisfaction and hence, has become an essential part of my daily life.
