Artist, Maker, Gallerist, Technician

Historically Greek ceramics displayed social narratives relevant to the times. My artistic approach is a direct response to the formula used in ancient Greek pottery both formally and figuratively. Although it is not my intention to exactly replicate these objects of the past, but rather to adopt a similar style in terms of structure, surface pattern and imagery and narrative. These aesthetic qualities are in turn combined with contemporary narratives highly charged with satirical humour and subversive undertones.
