The Artists in Residence video and blog series is a look into the quarantined lives of artists and creatives all over the world! The interview questions offer an insight into how different people from all over the world are coping with the current Covid-19 pandemic. Each artist also shares a fun little project you can do at home. This episode of the series features Athanasia Papantoniou, from Larisa, Greece.
Q. Can you tell us a little about yourself?
My name is Athanasia which means Immortality in Greek.
I’m a music teacher in elementary school and as a musician I love all kinds of arts. When I am not playing the piano, I find myself at my scrappy desk making art journal pages, canvases, tags, altering things, sewing and more. I get inspiration from almost everything like colors, nature, flavors and smells and of course my music.
I love the limitless choices & combinations of mixed media techniques, not only with memories of my life & my family, but also with emotions & ideas that I have in my head & want desperately to express! I enjoy making videos and I hope I will inspire you with my projects!
Q. Is there anything you’ve learnt about yourself during this current lockdown?
During lockdown I found my lost creativity and plenty of time to occur it in many different projects and techniques. I always try to see things of the positive perspective and during this period found the opportunity to prove myself I can do it.
