Intro
Since childhood, I have had the passion of collecting and observing. Texture, colours, volume, reflections, smell, taste, where some of my criteria to keep or toss my findings. I used to create new objects using the found ones and I never outgrew that characteristic. I needed to understand my creative process and become technically skilled in order to transform my artefacts into quality pieces. My studies in History, Archaeology & History of Art (National Kapodistrian University of Athens) shaped my knowledge of human and material history. At the same time, I was having, design, classic and contemporary jewellery seminars. I moved to Italy in 2013 and since then I have shown my art at several juried competitions and have been awarded the Bronze A’ Design Award as a member of the Urban Fiction design team and with a Special Mention from the Italian association of contemporary jewellery (AGC) at the competition Jewels in Ferment 2016. I don’t always see limits between different disciplines as I restlessly experiment on new art practices. 
 

Statement

In my work I
Embrace both traditional as well as modern techniques and find great inspiration in the ensuing dialogues that my art reflects.
Love transforming simple objects into art and the surprise caused by the unexpected.
Charge objects and surfaces with human personalities and traits.
Generate new materials with a child’s curiosity, weighed down by time melancholy
 
---------
The outcome is
Contradictory, personal and political, a cry for freedom.
 I Don’t always see limits between different disciplines as I restlessly experiment on new art practices.
 Try to push the limits of how jewellery is still produced and perceived as an "object" and how it is connected to a limited understanding of beauty.
