Born in Petra on the island of Lesbos, I have been a painter since my twenties. My father was a painter, intellectual and a great collector of art books and vinyls of classical music. It is the one who passed me on the love of painting. Him and the discovery of the work of Theophilos Hatzimihail! My father left me another passion: olive oil, also called here "old gold", the gold liquid of olive trees.
