VIEW IN MY ROOM
'Cher' is part of the 'Birds' series. I have chosen several women, either famous or not, and placed them in front of opulent backgrounds. Inspired by iconic women, it was painted from a known photo. A detailed, bronze background was then added. I wanted to capture the seventies feel of the photograph and chose colours and tones that would emphasize this. It was painted on 300gsm watercolour paper using watercolour, acrylic, pastel, marker and gold leaf. It needs to be matted and framed behind glass. Frame not included.

Born and raised in South Africa to Greek Cypriot parents, I knew I wanted to be an artist when I was seven years old. After completing my BA in Fine Art from the University of the Witwatersrand, I moved to Taiwan where I taught English and Art. Four years later, I moved permanently to Cyprus where I currently reside in Nicosia, the last divided city in Europe. I owned a recruitment company for several years leaving very little time to paint, however, during Covid, with offices shut, I found my old paintbrushes and started painting again. One thing led to another, and I decided to leave the corporate world for good, choosing to rent a studio where I now paint full time. I have had several artworks published in art publications and sell paintings to both local and international collectors. I am currently working towards a solo exhibition. Inspired by people, nature, still-life, and interiors, I paint in saturated colours with bold expressive brushstrokes. My work often tells a story and feels quite whimsical, superimposing animals in interior spaces or humans in front of ornate, detailed backgrounds. A mixed-media artist, I adore watercolour paper, favouring it above all other mediums, and work primarily in acrylics, pastel, pen, and watercolour.
