One of the most lovable artworks “Grandma”; created in 2017.
My lovable Grandma was the reason for creating this painting. She passed away 23 years ago. I captured this wonderful moment with my camera, while she was breaking almonds in her small home in the village, at Palaichori. A capture of an unforgettable precious moment of life, created by color pencil. With this art, I want to convey a sense of sweet nostalgia and help those viewing it to be reminded of their own happiness and how important and valuable are those special moments in our lives.
I’m using color pencils because they allow precision, control of detail, and depth. I wanted to have control over my line weight and can be easily emphasized on details and shadows. Having control over the line weight is a great way to separate objects from one another and can help emphasize shadows. I’m transferring the simplicity and sensitivity of the moment by creating lighting and softness shadings in contrast to very dark and thicker lines, where I’m conveying the 3D form and focusing on the grandma figure.

The grandmother's figure awakens these carefree and beautiful moments in the village and connects us to the past. Moments when my own and older generations lived and made our lives more beautiful and more special. Through this art, I convey these messages to the younger generations, thus keeping our roots alive. I want to inspire those who see my work to look more carefully and discover beauty in simple moments and the strength of emotions they obtain through this art. Through art we don’t just understand; we feel, we experience. Art moves us in ways that can bypass the walls we build to keep out the truth.
