Profile

llustrator/Printmaker originally from Greece, but now based in Edinburgh. He specialises in creating illustrations mainly for editorial and in his free time, highly detailed, multi- layered linocuts. He graduated from Coventry School of Art and Design in 2007, but upon his return to Greece, spent a few years building traditional musical instruments and working with the land. When he joined his partner in Edinburgh in 2010, he taught himself linocutting, and became a member at Edinburgh Printmakers. He likes bringing the textures and shapes from linocuts into his illustrations, but also enjoys working and experimenting with various styles. He revels in sharpening edged hand tools, flying kites with his daughter and cooking.
