Born in 1989, in Kavala, Greece.
Lives and works in Athens.


In her work, a personal experience or event, real or imaginary, is the starting point for fragments' stitching and the composition of tales, where the irrational, the reasonable, the uncanny and the secret may coexist harmoniously.

Founder of CHORA ATELIER.
