I am Greek and I live and work in the Waitakere Ranges of North Island in New Zealand. I am a devotee of art. A mixed-media artist with an emphasis in glass, a medium with many sensual and optical qualities. I love using glass to express myself artistically. I love the way it looks and feels and the way it reflects and distorts light. I work with organic forms that show elemental forces like wind, fire and water. Depicting movement particularly interests me while I make my glassworks. The constant movement of these elements is captured in my sculptures and enhanced by the play of light inside the glass.
My work has shifted in focus lately to bigger size works and installations that target different social issues from rape to refugees. These works also incorporate other materials like metal, stone and wood. Size means a lot to me. The joy and satisfaction that I get from creating big works are really fulfilling.
My art constantly reflects my state of mind, my Greek heritage and my surrounding nature.
