About Fotini Hamidieli Martou
Born in 1957 in Greece. Lived and studied in the U.S. and Italy. Presently living in Greece painting, teaching art lessons, doing some graphic design work and developing educational art programs for children.The human figure and colour have been my main interests throughout my work. Inspiration can come from anywhere and ideas brew internally and usually surface unexpectadly. The work of Cezanne, Matisse and American expressionism have influenced me from early on.
