What is it that keeps one painting even though lifeís activities make it so hard to do so? Is it the promise of recognition, fame and riches? Or is it something much deeper than this? When it comes to me, I am simply getting tremendous satisfaction from the act of watching, then seeing and translating the image on a sheet of paper or canvas, so other people can see what is in my mindís eyes.

I was not born with a pencil in hand like other artists did. Grew up in Patras, first child in a family of nine, having a devoted priest as a father and a mother with extraordinary love, who had to divide her love to her many children and give it whole to each one. The love affair with painting started when I was a student in Austin, Texas, and has been going strong since then. Studies in the use of light in medicine were paralleled by efforts to apply color for expression.

My style is always a work in progress, advancing slowly when I am able to steal time from a busy professional schedule. With this note, I would like to thank the American Hellenic Council for the invitation to exhibit and encouragement to continue a draining but rewarding ritual.
