My name is Jovanka Katarzyna Petrevska - I was born in Poland, grew up in Yugoslavia (doesn't exist any more) and since I met and got married to Mr. Papathanasiou (almost 20 years ago) I live permanently in Greece.
I am a mom of one - 12 y.old son and also a mom of 5 dogs+1 cat. We as a family are great animal lovers and we try to save as many strey dogs and cats as possible.... in the small town in North Greece where we live.
Painting is my oldest and greatest passion of all, and as long as I can go back to my memories I hold a pencil or a brush in my hand and draw or paint something on a piece of paper or canvas. It makes me happy, it relaxes me, it brings so much joy into my daily routines! Most of my inspiration comes from the nature (I am an agronomist, with a PhD in hydroponics and a 17 years of Academic carrier), which I consider the greatest artist of all! No matter how much I observe the nature, it can still surprise me with the beauty of the landscape, or the shape of a flower, or the combination of colors...all these creations, all these forms, all this never ending beauty!
So here are some of my paintings, modest attempts to transfer small parts of nature on paper/canvas. I hope you will like it. In any case, I appreciate you visited my gallery and spend some time reading about me.
Warmest regards from Jovanka Papathanasiou
