I WAS BORN IN GREECE,
Where ancient history is a living part of everyday life. I was born and raised in the tiny village of Melitea, exactly where Achilles and the Myrmidones Kingdom stood from a day gone by. I still feel the essence of the holy ground of my family’s farm, finding broken pieces of ancient pottery, marble mosaics, walls from ruins of long ago and the echo of my father’s stories about Greek civilization. I was educated in Athens, the cradle of democracy, and spent most of my life around the Parthenon, the source of inspiration for all important artists since the beginning of time. All these elements of ancient Greece – the art, architecture, history and mythology . . . are etched into my soul.
