For me, art has been the most inspiring part of my childhood and grew up to be my commitment in life.
When I think of art I think of beauty.
Beauty is the mystery of life.
It is not in the eye; it is in the mind.
In our minds there is awareness of perfection.
Hands are the extension of the thinking process – the creative process.
Here, you can explore my journey through my paintings, my passion for photorealism and my ongoing effort to make this world a better place - through art!

This project explores the reality of the refugee situation on Lesvos. The works are inpired by the "Lifejacket Graveyard" - the field where all the lifejackets collected from refugees who arrive on the island are gathered. People who are desperate to escape war, pile their dreams in a landscape which is so sobering to walk through. Each vest represents a person, a soul, an individual pressed forward by fear and clinging to hope. Most survived the journey, many didn’t. The artwork is a shout out to the world for help to all those who are fighting for a better future. It is a stark portrait of the many refugees who crossed the Aegean Sea and a massive reminder of the resilience of the human spirit that stretches to the horizon.
