Starting from the pupil

The eye-pupil was the first to be painted inside a hole in this driftwood piece, and then all the rest just fell into place: The deep wrinkles carved by tears , the hair line, the thin, almost transparent body: A painted “natural sculpture” of the patron saint for penitence- The venerated St. Mary of Egypt

Contemporary byzantine art enthousiast. Working in an old warehouse studio in the island of Crete. Love painting on driftwood, repurposed wood, pebbles and all kinds of irregular shapes.
