PEGGY GRAFAKOU
Mosaics, Pebbles, & Paintings

Welcome to... my life's quest in Fine Arts!

My life's journey of self expression through art, began sometime around 1993, studying and practising ~besides some qualified Art colleges~, next to excellent artists & professors of Painting (incl. wall & ceiling painting) and Mosaics...

So by now, I had the opportunity and the pleasure of studying...
~ Painting, in "Vakalo, Art & Design College",
~ Architectural painting/conservation & restoration of monuments and works of art, with the artist/professor Mr. Nick Maraslis,
~ the art of Mosaics, with the artist/professor Mrs. Elena Stathopoulou,
~ Drawing and Painting, with the artist/professor Mrs. Eugenia Psaroni, and
~ Painting and Art History, with the artist/professor Mr.  Dimitris Maninis.


Some of my professional activities & art excibitions, recapitulate below!
