Statement

The experience of growing up on Paros, an island in the Aegean Sea in Greece, my ties to it, its history and people are central to my work. I carry my island with me everywhere. These themes of the past are reflected in my choice of materials and the ethereal, ephemeral forms I create; reminders of the sea, its openness and possibilities but also its limitations – reflections of a displacement, fragility, and instability while honoring the small and insignificant.






“Walking, I am listening to a deeper way. Suddenly all my ancestors are behind me. Be still, they say. Watch and listen. You are the results of the love of thousands” Linda Hogan (Chickasaw)
