I have been professionally engaged in pottery since 1975, and almost exclusively working with porcelain since 1988.

Having graduated the Doxiades School of Graphic Arts and Design, I attended the workshop of Stelios Laskaris and afterwards studied pottery (David Woodcock), chemistry (Menander Papadopoulos), Raku (Menanoler Papadopoulos, Kostas Tarkasis) and porcelain (David Leach). In addition, I completed a two – year seminar on Art History by Pantelis Tzavalos. My journeys through France, Italy, Russia, Egypt, Denmark, Sweden and Turkey have all provided artistic stimuli and affected my work in various ways.

I am a member of the Greek Chamber of Arts and Crafts, the Association of the Mesogaea Visual Arists, as well as a founding member of the Panhellenic Union of Artistic Ceramists. I also served in the Board of Critics for the awards of the 50th Panhellenic Show of Ceramics.

I have displayed my works in a solo exhibition at the ‘EMEIS’ Gallery in Tsakalof St., and participated in numerous group exhibitions in Greece ( Art Athena ’11, the Vorres Museum, the Athens Municipality Center, the Salonica Municipality et al., as well as in England and Belgium.
