Work Inspiration with Workspiration

The guys at Workspiration asked me a few questions about how I work...
Here it is!

Who are you?

I’m an artist living and working near Byron Bay, Australia. I’m half English / half Greek, and have been in Aus for the last 4 and a half years.

I've framed many screen prints for customers, but also had larger, more precious original drawings framed by professional framers as well.

Sometimes when you get so used to doing what you love you just need a bit of a change; After ten years of black and white drawings in fine line pen, I reached that point. My love affair with The Pen isn't over, but I needed a little bit of something on the side. Know what I mean?

I was in London a couple of months ago and got lost in an art store as I usually do. I still spent near enough an hour browsing through beautiful papers but I was so used to...
