I was born in Limnos Greece in 1949 and migrated to Melbourne Australia  1957,where I live.
Studied at the National Gallery Art School with John Brack and Alun Leach-Jones. I have worked at painting and drawing consistently over the years and exhibit regularly.

The images on this site are examples from three recent series.
‘The forest’  ‘The suburban landscape’ and ‘The figure’

I am interested in making images from the man made environment,the human presence and the natural landscape.
I look for structure and order in transforming the ordinary and transient into flat formal monuments that give the illusion of solidity and permanence.

I see harmony, unity and interconnection in the makeup of visual reality and endeavour to have these values reflected in the language of my painting.
Drawing is very important to me, it is the initial responsive contact with the subject, before I begin to analyse and dissect in orchestrating the painting.

All pictures are for sale. Price on request.
