Born in Nicosia, Cyprus in 1990.

She is a graduate of the University of Crete, Department of Applied Mathematics (March 15, 2013).

She is a graduate of the School of Fine Arts, Department of Visual and Applied Arts, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, (July 26, 2018), majoring in painting with professors Dimitris Zouroudis, Kyriakos Mortarakos and Yiannis Skyllogiannis. Since 2018 she lives and works in Cyprus.

The thematic axes of the section of my works revolve around the issue of creating visual space with the use of geometric shapes and lines. Their choice as a decisive form factor is mainly due to my previous training as a mathematician.

Certain mathematical curves have the ability to evoke different emotions depending on the quantitative relationships and ratios they express. They also convey the concept of order, rhythm and an inner harmony.

The geometric forms that I seek to include in my visual research form such curves-surfaces. The forms disappear and move to infinity, the overlapping of shapes as well as the quantitative and qualitative contrasts, cause the illusion of movement and depth. The main idea is to create a three-dimensional space on a two-dimensional surface, leaving what the work evokes for free viewing.

The complexity of the composition that seeks the illusion of space requires a perfection of execution, as also the relationships between shapes and lines, either in terms of the extent they occupy, or in terms of the brilliance or not of the contrasts aims at the organized action of expressive of visual forces, where the shapes disappear in a dynamic game that I hope conveys a meaning corresponding to each viewing of the work.
