Lives and works in Europe, currently in The Hague


After a long and faithful commitment to the love of art and creativity I found myself in  The Netherlands completing a BFA at the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague.

Australian born, with Greek parents, living between two ancient cultures, raised by a modern carefree society and nurtured under vast blue skies, I have travelled extensively and explored multiple countries and the people and societies that define them.

A lifetime of exploration has gifted me a deep well of collected imagery and story. These fascinations are expressed through collating images both remembered and present, listening to the whispers of old and new stories, and seeking to understand the value of time and our place in it. In this research, objects are made, images drawn, poetry compiled and new mythologies discovered.
