Here’s an oil painting that I finished which depicts looking out of a window at the Mulberry House in Corfu.
Reflecting on the year with some pieces from 2022. I'm most happy with "Cape Sounio - Temple of Poseidon". It is my second largest piece (180 x 200cm) and painting it was a rewarding journey. I completed the artwork just in time for my second gallery exhibition for the year.
This year I left my full-time job as a product designer to pursue painting. It's a difficult decision as I spent most of my life building that career and my income dropped dramatically. Starting over from scratch is both scary and exciting. It feels like the path that I must take. A painter needs to create full-time or it won’t work.
I was married this year to my wonderful wife. We had a beautiful wedding in Aegina and moved to a new part of the island—close to the sea.
Another favorite from 2022 is this 50x40 cm oil on canvas "Cathedral of Aegina". I faced my fears and started this one outside at the cathedral, in public. I was afraid it would not turn out well but I think it came together. The artwork sold recently.
This year I made 10 paintings and my first two gallery exhibitions. I learned a lot and am excited to make more progress in 2023. Looking forward to sharing more experiences from Greece and to bring new, better art to you all.
I hope you've all had a wonderful year and I wish the best for you. Love to you all.

It is time for another exhibition. I will have 5 works presented at an exhibition that has opened on September 7th and will last until October. All of these paintings represent Ancient Greek temples from different locations.
I have been painting a lot, finishing the Cape Sounio, Temple of Poseidon - painting. It was nice to go on a trip and meet people at the opening.
Have a great September! 😊🍁
My paintings that are exhibited:
A Time of Art gallery representative contacted me with an offer to meet and discuss our possible collaboration. We took a trip to Kifisia, north of Athens center and where the gallery is located. We had a great chat and decided to work together.
On July 6th there will be a group exhibition opening and I am part of this exhibition. It is exciting to participate, it will be my first gallery exhibition. Looking forward to this experience and hope to have many more exhibitions in the future.
Have a great month! 🌻🍉
