Say hello at


Hello, I am a freelance illustrator and printmaker based in Athens, working internationally. My background is rooted in graphic design and my illustration work is immediately recognisable for transcending boundaries between graphic design, illustration and fine arts. My illustration is characterised by a unique visual language that translates into experimental compositions, together with hand printed mark-making, cut-out elements and bold colours. My diverse skill set and constant fascination with what the printed process can offer make my illustrations versatile for various areas of the industry, such as editorial, publishing and advertising.

Literary texts, along with historical and social topics are reflected in my daily image-making, with hints to the power of protest, the climate crisis and our human connections. My work is a strong blend of monotype drawings (that take the shape of observational pieces) and free-form collage with found imagery or lush printed textures. I enjoy making spontaneous decisions within my print practice allowing the process to dictate the outcome.
