Artist Statement

My work has been inspired from many different artists throughout time; including Marc Chagall, Tara Donovan, and my very talented aunt, Maria Papademetriou. I work in both small and large scale using a wide range of mediums. My most commonly used medium is oil, but I also paint mixed-media pieces using oil paint, acrylic paint, spray paint, and cut paper.

I come from a family of creative thinkers, and I have been passionate about making art since I was very young. I attended Dulaney High School where I was very involved in the art program. I then graduated and went on to completing two semesters at the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) where I then faced financial difficulties, unfortunately. I didn't let that get in the way of my passion, though, and began commissioning my work. I developed my commission business called 'Chromatic Concepts'. I also instruct art programs at local independent schools. I enjoy sharing my work with others as well as broadening young artists' horizons, leading them in a creative way.
