we use natural materials of the utmost quality

we create hagiographies for movable icons, churches

we work on the details of our assignments with patience and love

we love byzantine art and this is the reason why we approach our assignments with care and passion

I studied economics at the Thessaloniki University, but my professional course changed
when I came into contact with byzantine hagiography. 

Between 1990 and 1995 I studied alongside the established hagiographers Dimitris Tzovaras and nun Kassiani.
I have attended classes at “Ikonourgia” and a series of seminars organised  by the hagiographers’ association.

Since 1995 I have been working with A. Skaliotis, collaborating with him on various projects.

I have created a series of movable icons as well as the hagiography of churches such as:
- St. Apostoles’ church at Variades, Ioannina
- St. Irini Hrisovalandi, at Fourni, Ikaria
- Evangelismos Church at Metamorfossi, Attiki (Athanassiou S.A.)
- St George’s church at Penteli, in Patmos Holy Monastery lot

My work is exhibited in, and can be bought at the shop of the Holy Monastery of Agios Ioannis THeologos,
in Patmos and at the shop of Hydra’s Historical Archives foundation

I am a member of the Hellenic Chamber of Artists and the Pan-Hellenic Association of Hagiographers.
