I am a London based artist and printmaker. In the day I teach Business English in the corporate sector. On my days off I do printmaking, drawing and digital imaging. I am learning the piano too when I have the time.
Exhibitions: It’s a long time since I exhibited prints as I have spent about 15 years working with constructed photography and digital imaging. However, last year 2018, I exhibited in two exhibitions : one at the Arts Depot in north London and the other in Trowbridge in Wiltshire. I delivered this last print by hand all the way to Wiltshire and a fish and chip lunch near the church.
Background:I originally trained in design, running a design practice in Greece with a partner for five years. I did a degree in Printmaking at Farnham and an MA Photography course in London. I have taught art and design, printmaking, IT, web design, digital imaging, textiles in London schools, colleges and unis.
Travel: I have traveled widely from the US to India. In India we built and ran a restaurant in Poona. I ran a creche in San Francisco and have taught English all over Europe.
Artistic Processes: I like mixing various processes, creating artists books and researching London history. I have recently become an open access member at East London Printmakers and London Print Studio where I am doing photopolymer. I also visit Artichoke Print Studio in Brixton as it is the only place where I can produce a decent photo plate.
I used to promote artists books online at zybooks for 10 years and showcased the work of over 100 artists from around the world. I started another six online collaborative global art projects too.
My family: I live in Islington with my partner Subs, who is a musician and gardener. Our little Pip died this year very sadly and I miss him so much, he was my little mate.
