Born in Athens, Greece, I studied painting and engraving next to prominent Greek artists.

My education on art is continuous.  

Participated in many group exhibitions as well as in contests and biennials

in Greece and abroad (USA, Argentina, Germany, Spain, England, Italy, Bulgaria,

Romania, Turkey, Sweden, France, Poland, Russia, etc to mention only a few),

where my work hangs in private and public collections.

I was invited by Saatchi Gallery together with other artists to be showing my work

on their site permanently.
