Athena Kostiri

Greek Pyrographer

1973 AD -

Athena Kostiri

My name is Athena Kostiri. I was born in January 27th 1973, raised and still living in the beautiful city of Thessaloniki in Greece . Since i was a child i always remember myself painting and crafting. Due to my profession i never had the time to attend any art class, i worked for many years as a secretary in an insurance company mornings and evenings as well.

Although i never got the chance to attend any art class i tried through books and practice to learn the secrets of painting. Over the years i tried all shorts of mediums, oil painting, pastel, acrylic, colored pencils e.t.c. but nothing seemed to attract me so much in order to focus on it.

Suddenly one day in 2009 while i was surfing the internet i came across some pyrography photos. That was it! I finally found my call! The next day i run to an art store, bought a simple burner, a piece of wood and run back home to test it. I realized that this was for me; my searching on a medium that would fill my heart was finally over.

Since 2009 I'm still burning every day and recently got my first order as well as a deal with a store in order to sell my work. I am unemployed and totally focused on this wonderful art which I hope people in Greece and around the world get to know better.
