I was born (a 70″s baby) and raised in Wellington with a Greek Cypriot/Lebanese background, and like a lot of New Zealander’s I’m well travelled.
As soon as I could hold a pen I started to draw, at the age of 4 I was drawing cars in 3D, later in life after finishing college I completed a Graphic design course at Wgtn Polytechnic/Victoria University.
After working in the design industry for about 16 years I decided I would rather spend my time making creations for my self which has taken me to this stage, which I love doing and cant imagine ever stopping.
Although my work all shares common attributes I want each piece to express different feelings and even techniques.
Mostly moody I want each piece to be dark but also in some way positive.
It can take months to complete an individual work and they are printed on specially imported polyester canvas material using a solvent based ink. It takes 2 weeks drying time for my work due to the rich blacks.
