Textile designer from Athens, Greece

About me

I never felt that I chose to become an artist, in fact I felt that I needed to.
It is enough for me to activate emotions, thoughts, reflections, quests.

There are no limits or paths.
I am obsessed with making things around me more “beautiful”. I wonder though what beauty really is.
Of course I end up with my own version of beauty, as I perceive with my own eyes, with my own aesthetics.

I wanted to find a way for people to wear the art, to have it on them, a luxury in their daily life.
Finally, I only make the design, everything else is done by silk itself.

The region of Attika, Greece

Every educated person who reads about Athens, the capital of Greece, immediately thinks about ancient glories: the place where Socrates and Plato developed their philosophical and political theories. Majestic temples and ancient marble statues appear in front of the imaginary view. Many stories from the world of gods and legends are woven around t…
