"I wish my designs can find their way to the homes of people who love
the Aegean as much as I do, and to the homes of visitors who want to
take a memory of it with them…"
Her main inspiration source is the island of Tinos -her second home: the
sea with the changing moods, the rough standing rocks, the local
I needed to work on something that would intrigue me, so in 2014 I
created a design-decor project which I named “The Round Button”. The
main idea behind this project was to combine minimalistic style with
themes inspired by the Cyclades islands.
While it began as a prints project, it now involves collaborating with
architects & decorators for the decoration of homes, hotels and office
spaces. In addition, the designs are applied to a series of decor
products and gifts.
Well, I create art because it is my way of escaping reality, a way of
breathing in everyday city life.
strolling around the island's most peculiar places, in order to
discover architectural shapes and natural elements that can be later
redesigned. I collect as many photos as possible and then when I go
back to my office in Athens I choose my favorites.
The second phase is to imagine, draw shapes and create minimal designs
out of these photos. When the designs are ready I test them on walls
and fabric to see if they can be used and how.
So my everyday routine on the island is full of walking and
photographing, while my routine at the city workshop includes lots of
sketches, computer work, and embroidery!
What song inspires you?
Well it can’t be just one, right? The radio is always on while I work,
I hear classical music, lots of rock and a bit of mainstream (depends
on the project actually) but if it had to be only one inspiring song
that would be “Absolute Beginners” by D. Bowie
What superpower would you have and why?
Time-traveling. Definitely. If that’s not possible I’d like to be the
invisible woman, please 😂
What’s the best piece of advice you’ve been given?
To be persistent and patient at the same time.
Name something you love, and why.
I love walking at the island, breathing the scented air, being in
touch with natural elements of the Aegean and feeling free.
