Color Schemes

Updated: Oct 16, 2020

When I am introducing color to my students my go to is the

Design Seeds website.

It is my absolute favorite site to find good color schemes!

Click here to check it out!

Once my students figure out what color scheme they want to use I have them look up the colors in my Color Mixing Recipe Books!

Yes I have color RECIPE books and they are AWESOME!!!!

This teaches students/artists how to mix colors and get out of the practice of using colors straight from the tube! Kids love this!!!!!

The books by William F. Powell are my fave so far!

You can find them on Amazon or shop at your local art supply store!

travel   Texas surf Culture   nature



My journey as an artist began at a young age growing up in a Greek-American family and living off the coast of West Africa. My inspiration comes from my travels, nature, surf and local culture. Since I was constantly traveling as a child, I don’t really identify with one place or culture. I am on a constant journey and my art is a product of that journey. Some call my work Surf Art, Beach Art, Yoga Art and more. To me it's my art, my emotions and what I am going through at the time. My process starts with patterns, words, numbers, letters, and multiple layers of color washes and various mediums with an image evolving from the background. I love creating local beach imagery in Texas and imagery based on my travels and local surf culture. The best part of being an artist is seeing someone feel a connection with a piece knowing that it takes them somewhere or a moment in time that I captured of them. Seeing that excitement and smile on their face is the best feeling to me as an artist.
