I am an illustrator, graphic designer and facilitator, born in Greece.

My work has been influenced by transpersonal psychology, psychedelic research and indigenous traditions that describe life as a movement towards wholeness. My current project, “The Psychonaut”, is a series of short visual narratives that reflect an inner journey and the adventure of self discovery.

In recent years I have become increasingly interested in participatory arts and the ways that creativity can and facilitate community building, compassion and awareness.
