Katerina is an award-winning freelance illustrator, working with the most prominent publishing houses in Greece and has illustrated close to 250 titles of children’s’ books. These include non-fiction as well as picture books. She grew up in North America – Montreal, Canada and New York, USA and studied art at Concordia University of Montreal.
She teaches art to children and adults and her strong belief is that art making should be a source of pleasure. The Artmade workshops are all about having fun while being creative.
Katerina believes that the fundamentals of art – design, value, color, composition – are necessary tools in facilitating art making, but she also strongly believes that an artist must find his/her own individual voice and personal means of expression. She encourages a free and loose approach, through mixed media techniques, collage, diverse tools and various references.
