Born in Cephalonia in 1934 and moved to Athens in the same year. Primary School – St. Eleftherios, Areos. Gymnasium- Lyceum – Ambelokipi.


Studied art under T. Drosos and C.Christides, two artists with enormous intellectual and artistic merit, both disciples of the Munich School.
I learnt to paint in the traditional way, with brush and canvas and will always stay with this.
The light and colour of Greece and Cyprus and their disappearing world, are important sources of my inspiration.
In 1958 I attempted to enter the Athens School of Fine Arts under Moralis, but for health reasons I went to Sweden instead.
On returning to Athens I had some exhibitions and then left for Johannesburg, S,Africa. There I studied at the Art School but left without graduating because they could not teach me more than I already knew.
After many exhibitions in S.Africa and Rhodesia I returned to Greece where I continued to exhibit my work.
