My Greek-American experience is at the center of my work, along with themes of spirituality, death, nature, and religion. I use symbols, expressive lines, landscape-like scenes, compositions reminiscent of interiors, and text to create narratives of family and to explore both the mundane and profound aspects found in being multi-cultural. The analogous rhythms and even the dichotomy of my Greek-American landscape intrigues me, and I often use these to create newer, stranger meanings. I refer to my paintings as "studies" for ideas that cannot be fully articulated or explained.
