Greece
I'm a certified graphic designer but i abandoned this trade years ago...

For the living i work at 5 star hotels in the Greek islands, as a night auditor receptionist, every summer.

In winter i live with my art.
I do paintings on almost every surface, i make sculptures and decorative wreaths with natural materials which i collect every summer from the islands.
I also create frames, mirrors, lamps, candles, soaps and everything i can make with my hands.
I'm into photography,engraving and recently i made my first pieces of jewelery which had a grand success.

I'm a free spirit trapped in a jar, waiting, for something that may never come...

My ultimate dream is to open a craft shop in an island and live free only from my art...Something that i almost reached but i left aside before i even start it and all because of the Greek financial crisis...i'll just wait till better times come...

My naughty bunnies...
This time i'm practising on the art of origami...thanks to You-Tube,  you can make everything from butterflies to dragons...

These are some of my bunny creations ...just having fun...:happybounce: 
Loading...
Unicorn crush...pick 2
This is a sculpture i made with tempered glass fragments and a rectangular piece of the same kind of glass that had cracks starting from the center towards out.

I used silicone glue to bring all these pieces together and finally i adjusted it on a transparent plastic frame stand.

All these were ment to be througn away at the garbage bin but i found this matterial interesting and gave to it a new life...

Melting shores...
I took this photo during the sunset ...

This blueish,like some kind of radioactive blob that seems to move towards the sea is actually natural clay...

Here they say that it does really good to the skin and everyday i see dozens of tourists , covered with this from head to toe ,like creatures from the Avatar or humanoid Smurfs fooling around all over the beach....

I took a bag of it at home ...i tried that on my face...and yes...it really works...
Loading...
The smallest pumice stone wreath i made...
My latest creation...as pumice stones are so rare in this island ...

...i had the idea to decrease the size...

Here you can see it compared with my watch...yes...they are both beautiful...
Loading...
Emergency exit nest...
Swallows here dare to built their nest almost everywhere...

This is an example ...three different nest built over the emergency exit sign...

Really clecer they combine a safe sleeping place and a night light...

In the first you can see two baby swallows that try to take a pick of what is happening outside...
Loading...
Two swallows observing the moon...
...A lucky shot...

Though swallow is a really common kind of bird here and doesn't afraid to build it's nest even over the door frames of the hotel rooms that we rent...

...i noticed that they don't like to get photographed...(like my cat Korina...) and every time i try to approach them with my camera they fly away...
Loading...
The tide is low...
On this island i had for the first time in my life,the opportunity to observe this phenomenon...

Just sand and salt water...

Nature can create beauty with the simplest things...

This was so pretty that i almost felt guilty for stepping on it...the feeling under my feet was amazing though...
Loading...
Giant footprint...
I love footprints on the sand...:happybounce: 

...and no this is not so large sa it seems ,it's just the angle of my camera that made the trick...Wink/Razz 
Loading...
Trinity of wreaths...
This is another experiment of this Summer that went well...

I collected some sand from the near beach covered the base of my wreaths and just added some shells...

It's much easier and faster and the result is great...and i preserve a piece of my favorite beach ,in my house ,during every season...

Pride

BE YOURSELF

Made with pride by the DeviantArt community BROWSE ALL ART

For all of us who love Anime Movies and especially the genius of Hayao Miyazaki this is a beautiful video made by Dono...

''Princess Mononoke'' left me with a bitter hope....i cried with the 'Grave of the fireflies'' and i found ''My neighbor Totoro really sweet...but i
n my opinion his best is the ''Spirited Away'' ...

I've been watching Anime since i remember my shelf...actually my first Anime series was '' Candy Candy'' from the 80's...
                                                                                                                                                                                                        ...what was your's ???
A real masterpiece ...for all of us who love art this is a dream come true...Some of the most famous paintings take a breath of life  by Rino Stefano Tagliafierro , dude you are a wizard ...we want more like that !!!
Listen this !!!
It could have been an amazing love song...but the artists who create this beautiful love song , gave to it a total different view...

For all those who say that they love animals ...and keep buying all those posh , pure blooded cats and dogs...i have to say this...A real friend can't be bought !!!!

IT'S TIME TO ADOPT A REAL FOREVER FRIEND !!!
Thousands of those stray , kind souls are waiting for you to save them...          Watch this and keep that in mind...
