Overview

Hi! I am a freelancer illustrator and cartoonist. I have worked for many publishing companies mainly for English learning publishers as Macmillan , Oxford and Cengage learning. In Greece I have illustrated a series of tales books for Psychogios publications and I have also worked as a cartoonist in manyTV commercials.

The colours, the shapes, the letters, the photos, your ideas, everything mixed up in a painters pallet. In our digital world everything is possible. From a rough sketch, a wonder is about to happen!!
All my inspiration in a blank piece of paper comes to life. The writer's thoughts like a silent wave whisper to my heart. I close my eyes and the images come to life!!
