as expressive teaching artist

empowering children

to express their magic

about.

I am passionate about guiding children to uncover their creative potential. My expressive art classes honor art as a reflective, sensory part of life and facilitate the magic that children can create when sharing together with love, strength and passion.

I am  innate, interdisciplinary performing artist, and a  licensed psychologist from Greece. I also lived 10 years in Argentina and Peru, before moving to San Francisco in 2014 to complete my MA in Expressive Arts Therapy at CIIS (2017).

I believe in the power of the arts to get to know ourselves and transform the world, and I am convinced that children always stay alive within, no matter how old we are.

That is why I am here to advocate for the priceless value of play, imagination, expression, art making, and creativity in our everyday lives, at ALL ages.
