Industry Arts
Occupation Inter-/Trans-Disciplinary Artist/Educator
Location Brooklyn, NY
Introduction I am an interdisciplinary artist of Greek ancestry whose art practice investigates: human identity, human body, human voice, house/home, geography and language. My paintings, drawings and sculptures are often auto-biographical. Through familiar representations such as: house, home and the body I explore my human feelings, thoughts, memories, perceptions and experiences. However, these recognizable images are almost always metaphors. My projects have been featured at Brooklyn Historical Society, Macy Gallery, Columbia University, Brooklyn Stone House, Nancy Dryfoos Gallery, Kean University, Kentler International Drawing Space, Brooklyn, AthensArt Ukraine and Egypt and published at the Hellenic Chronicle, Interview Bulletin, Columbia University, to name a few. My art praxis and art education pedagogy have evolved synchronistically over my years of art making, activism, and teaching.
