The Painter's Workshop


About me


"My subject matter is nature and my medium is acrylic on canvas. Nature has always evoked deep feelings in me, both in her pure form and in the hidden figures and meanings that emerge from within. Through my paintings I invite the viewer to emerge themselves in the experience of finding their own meanings and shapes."

A long-time arts educator, Vasiliki has dedicated a large part of her professional life mentoring art students. A strong believer that art education is paramount to the development of a well-rounded person, she created her own arts workshop in 1994 which run for more than 20 years in Athens. During this period she couched more than 5000 students of all ages and backgrounds from young children and mature students, to students training to enter the prestigious Greek School of Fine Arts and the School of Architecture of the National Technical University of Athens.

Since 2016, Vasiliki has returned to painting her own works, focusing on the medium and topic she loves most, acrylic paintings of nature. For this, she moved out of the city and into a small village at the heart of the mountainous Peloponnese region, an area rich in wild life. She has since created multiple paintings under two major series, the "Lousios" series which is inspired by the nearby river of the same name and the wild forest around it, and the "Efkalyptos" series which is inspired by the regeneration process of the Eucalyptus tree.

Along-side working on her own paintings, she has started a series of educational videos which will progressively cover the different techniques of making and using acrylic colour to help amateur painters realise their vision onto canvas.
