She practiced the art of painting and sculpting under the direction of the renowned Cypriot artist Pambos Michlis and the guidance of the sculptor Panicos Spanos, and later became a professional ceramic sculptor herself. Her practice is unique due to the size of her works and the skill with which she handles the clay.
