I was born in Philadelphia, USA by Greek parents, we moved to Greece after the dictatorship was overthrown in 1974 - so that shows my age... among other things. I have lived in Athens and Filiatra Messinias in the Peloponnese. I have also lived in England for seven years- 7 year itch ? - where I studied art in between of learning about myself, life, the world and the universe. I have been back in Athens for quite some time, enjoying my country and the amazing character and resilience of my fellow Greeks, while at the same time trying to make a living as a painter.
