My name is niki lironi!
I was born and raised in the city of Herakleion in Crete. I am a mosaic craftswoman and ever since i was a little girl I liked learning all kinds of crafts. I was charmed by the mosaic art from learning our history and from seeing the spectacular pebbles.
I came across in our Greek islands. I studied my art next to a cretan mosaic worker and at the same time, I pictured opening my own workshop in a traditional village of crete i had come to love.
My dream came true as I did open my workshop there in 2008 and it has become my favourite pastime and occupation since. Ι create my works of art with a lot of love strife persistence and patience.
I use materials taken from mother nature such as marble seawood and pebbles and some organic as well such as granite mirrors tiles and anything else i find interesting and that is durable in time.
I have traveled and lived abroad so my art has been affected by that. I use o variety of techniques.
I present my work in art exhibitions and I teach children and adults as well. My pieces have traveled to different cities of the world as well as a variety parts of Greece, the content of my work is varies from portraits to angiography as well as nature themed pieces of the sea and people’s feelings.
My art has taught me to be happy and calm which is the main reason i love it so much!
