Having completed my BA degree in Fine Arts, I feel even more motivated to continue my work as an artist. I want to become a professional artist, meaning that my goal is to have art as my full time job. Through the last three years as an art student, I found a balance between studying, making art and working as a waiter. I believe that the whole experience has made me stronger and more focussed because having limited time made me use it wisely. In the near future, I would still like to continue working in Larnaca for a few more years. For the time being I will take a break from studying, but maybe I will undertake a Masters degree in Fine Art at some time in the future. Firstly though, I feel that I need more experience in the real world. I will continue to work in order to support myself financially, but I aim at building my portfolio and taking part in exhibitions. I want to branch out in the art community, not only in Cyprus but abroad. I also aim at creating an online presence because the internet has become an integral way to promote yourself. This hopefully, will allow me to create contacts from around the world. I also want to travel and exhibit in different counties. Even though I have travelled and lived in different places before, every time it is a new experience. It feels like a learning experience and I believe that it is very important for the internal growth of a person. I believe that art comes side by side with your everyday experiences; my life and my daily routine affect what I create as an artist. This has been the subject of my art so far. I feel that it is a personal way of expressing myself, but also presenting something that can be shared with other people. Even though it is very difficult at times to find the value in everyday subjects, I feel that art has to be a struggle. This will always be a push for creation.Through my painting, I would reinvent what was familiar and abstract it, creating something new. As a person I am very active. I always want to have different projects started. I like to think that I can use my capabilities to achieve anything that comes to mind. I want to share with others what I am capable of creating and I want people to appreciate not only my work, but art in general. I think it is very important and powerful to have people talk about art. Perhaps in the future I can teach people about art although at the moment, I feel that I am still learning myself.
