I grew up in Cyprus and went to a Biochemists school in Greece. I also studied at an Art School. For the past 12 years, I have taught at the Adults Education Centres of the Ministry of Education and Culture in Nicosia.

I was introduced to polymer clay 23 years ago. Since then my passion grew and in 1999 I started teaching it in small groups. I also teach Stained glass, mosaics, glass engraving, and lots of crafts and jewelry. I teach wire jewelry and am a member of the International wire Juried Artists. I became an instructor of silver art clay in Cyprus. Usually, I have around 200 students per week.  

In 2008 I founded Cyprus Polymer Clay Association (CYPCA) with more than 200 members (

I share my life with my husband Alexis and two lovely children Andreas and Antonis. Andreas get married last year with a young and beautiful girl Anna and they are expecting their first child.

On May 2012 we are organizing the first Cyprus European Polymer Clay Fiesta. The registration has started and it seems to be going very well. I’m so excited about the whole event. If you visit our site you will see all the details about the event.
