Erika Florous

I was born in 1957 and grew up in Athens. These were difficult years, but full with the intense flavor of innocence and enthusiasm. Being a restless spirit I was constantly on the search for new themes that related as much for me as Art.

I studied Psychology for a year at the Faculty of Dolianiti while working at a ceramics workshop. Followed with studies in decorating at the Faculty of Vakalo.

After a  near-decisive approach to the world of theater with Bacchus and the "Seventh Theatre" by K. Damati, I went to Belgium. During '75 II studied there ceramics in "Ecole Superieure des Arts Plastiques". During this time I was also studying Art History and Free Drawing, at the "Beaux Arts".

In '85 I returned to Greece and to Alonissos in paticular, where I met my husband. Here I stayed and raised my children for the next 10 years. During this time apart from pottery I worked on creating works entirely made by hand from cheap and recyclable materials, but also from nature. A part of this work is presented in the exhibition...

Since '95 I live in Volos. I participated in group exhibitions in Belgium, Athens and Volos.
