Staying in touch with art – by Kiara Timm
Getting back on track from Summer to Autumn can be something to look forward to! Having a fresh start, back to the studio or your kitchen table, outdoor space or wherever your creative spot is and materializing creative ideas in any art form that you enjoy working on can be a very exciting feeling.
Autumn in the island can be inspiring in itself with it’s more bearable temperatures, beautiful sunrise and sunset colors and sunlight.
So, let your creativity flow and motivation to drive you to an exciting outcome! As always, stay well, stay positive and enjoy your reading!

MEETING A LOCAL ARTIST… IRINI KLOKKARI
This month we are excited to introduce the artist Irini Klokkari who is originally from Athienou, Larnaca. Irini has obtained a BA in Interior Design and an MA in Interdisciplinary Design.
She has created her own studio space, the ‘Klokkari Design Studio in her birth place Athienou, Larnaca, where she mainly focuses on character illustration. Her inspiration is mostly coming from the Cyprus traditions as it is so rich and has much to offer where each person perceives it in their own way.
According to Irini, the roots, history, culture and civilization are part of what makes us unique, thus we have to respect and appreciate it. Through her modern design and style Irini has created characters which are presented on different items in order to offer a special moment to each person, may this be anniversaries, weddings or baptisms.
Her characters collection includes traditional folklore art of Cypriot ladies and men, bakers, embroiders, Greek gods and goddesses as well as other characters from the Greek mythology.
Apart from the traditional illustration of the various folklore characters, Irini is also involved in the illustration of beloved ones, creating humoristic portraits to offer a unique gift to any home environment.
You can check out Irini’s collection of illustrations and characters at her on-line shop on Facebook at Klokkari Design Studio.
Creativity is contagious, pass it on!
