I am an artist who specializes in the medium of pastel. I was born on April, 1973, in Crete, Greece.
Officially a physicist, working at the Research & Technology sector, I have always had a deep passion for art.  The last 5 years, painting gets more and more irresistible to me, sometimes to the point of even thinking of switching to a new career.
I am totally self-taught. I started with black/colored pencils and charcoal, until I tried pastel for the first time, which I truly loved. Favorite subjects …almost anything. Landscapes, still life, portraits, fantacy. Realism, hyperrealism, details and high colour and luminous contrast fascinate me a lot, I must admit.  
I am currently in the process of expanding my portfolio and exploring the artistic world both within and beyond the borders of Greece. I have participated in several group exhibitions. My first personal one will take place in late spring 2013, at the Municipal Gallery of Heraklion, Crete, as a tribute to my place of birth.
My website is currently under construction, but you can catch a glimpse of my artwork here:
