I graduated from the University of the West of England, Bristol with a degree in Fine Arts and continued my studies at London Metropolitan University to receive a Masters in Arts and Heritage Management. My research interests include the status of visual artists in Cyprus, the contribution of art and cultural heritage in urban regeneration and how this may be achieved with the participation of people in the arts. I was one of the founders of νιμART, the group that organized «ART initiative» in June 2009, a three-day public art activity in Limassol; the artworks produced are now permanently installed in the premises of Cyprus University of Technology. I am also interested in arts and museum education and last spring I worked at the Education Department of the Saatchi Gallery in London. I have exhibited my own work in group exhibitions in England and Cyprus -the most recent of which was “50 years of artistic creation”, celebrating 50 years of the Republic of Cyprus. My most recent work experiments with scale and how it is relevant to the perception of the viewer. I continue making my own work and have gone back to painting while also experimenting with digital drawing since Yianni got me my first graphics tablet!
