Making art & world travel are my greatest passions. My exploration of the world started in 1992 and I have been very fortunate in being able to travel to five continents to date. I have visited places that, as a young child, I found and read about in ancient dog-eared tomes and they were full of rich prose, numerous elegant line drawings and just a few tiny sepia-toned photographic images.
In the 1950's those books were so inspirational. I had the dream to travel to and see some of those places one day. Today my books are modern but somehow less inspirational. My journeys to any destination are recorded as photographs of just about everything I find and my art is based on those journeys.
My art is patiently hand crafted on canvas using acrylic paints and acrylic inks. The art critics have described my art as having a unique brand or style. In their words, it's art cut down to its beautiful essence. It's about colour, shapes, lines & light. This page can only give you a brief introduction to me and my art.Please explore further into my website for more art click any red link for general content and for the PK Blogs click any blue link to return to this page its a green link.

The world has impressive must-see tourist attractions. They attract vast crowds of people who flock to the photographic hot-spots. Then they get their cameras out and slowly figure out just how to use them. Other people make intensely slow panoramic videos of what is, after all, a static object! Then there is the posing of their friends to be done and so on. The alternative is an expensive copyright protected postcard or two.Tourist attractions have been painted by a plethora of artists' since the beginning of time and their paintings can still be seen in any museum. I have no desire to add to this pool of sameness.
Away from that hectic world there are other sites simply crumbling away and tomorrow they will be gone. Here there are no people in the way just fences and vegetation concealing tantalizing glimpses of the past. This is just the starting point for my original art.©PK

In 2008 The Art Studio of Meltemi became my artistic base. It had a website that introduced me and my art to the world. It was a success attracting many visitors and my art sold worldwide until 2013.
By 2013 the hassle of running that commercial art studio had become too much. It was time to retire, to relax, and enjoy a simpler life. Today I've had the great pleasure of sharing my art with you. And thank you for your visit. Email
