About me and my Art


Born in Cyprus, now living in Exeter UK, I am an award-winning contemporary artist, writer, and ex-university lecturer. I established my studio, ‘The ArtHouse’ in October 2016, where I both create and display my art. Contact me if you would like to arrange an appointment to see my new artwork, prints and cards displayed in my studio ArtHouse in a relaxed atmosphere.

I playfully explore different avenues of abstraction mainly using acrylics on canvas. However, my inspiration has always been the human figure, and symbols in the universe. The colour palette I use is heavily influenced by my Mediterranean heritage. My passion to create art is expressed using a variety of brush stroke techniques and tools, including a palette knife.

Exhibitions

I have joined more than twenty-five art exhibitions in London, Exeter, Devon, Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus, and Japan. I also had six solo exhibitions. I am Mellow Art ‘Special Prize’ Winner in 2020 (Japan).

You can see my art in my web-site, Facebook page, Instagram, Devon Artists Network & Saatchi Art, and in my Studio, the ArtHouse.

Studio

After working in various temporary studios, my husband Mark, my biggest motivator, established my studio, ‘ArtHouse’ in October 2016 in Exeter, Devon, UK.
Apart from painting my art, I exhibit for ‘Private Viewers’ upon request.
My ArtHouse is open to other artists, poets, musicians, and art lovers for discussions on art and sharing creative ideas.
