I was born and raised in Athens, Greece. I've studied at the School of Economics and Management of the Technological Institute of Athens, specializing in Tourism Management. The last 6 years I have been working as a Sales Executive in the tourism industry. Painting has been one of my favorite hobbies since childhood and I've been observing and studying various painting techniques throughout the years. My main influences are the surrealists painters such as Dali, Ernst, Miro and Magritte. I have studied Comic and Illustration at S.Ornerakis School of Applied Arts and attended Art of History and Painting seminars with artist Costas Ioannides.
