I was born in Paris in 1964 and I began my art studies at the University of Sorbonne in 1981. From this Institution I received the following degrees:
During my studies I attended courses in Greek, Byzantine, Middle East, Indian and oriental Art and specialized in the various Fresco techniques. I received my Ph.D. with Honors in Paris where I exhibited my paintings at Sorbonne. The context of my thesis was semeiology of the icon and the relationships of Sacred Image with Contemporary Art.
In parallel with my studies I was an apprentice for 10 years to sculptor Kostas Perakis in Athens. During that time I was a student of the late famous Russian Hagiographer Leonid Ouspensky at the Orthodox Atelier of Hagiography in Paris.
I have exhibited my works in Art Galleries in Athens, Paris, Jerusalem, Ramallah, Bethlehem and Moscow. Occasionally I am occupied with book illustration and teaching painting in public and private schools.
