About Me

I am a fine artist, art historian, a researcher and art teacher from Cyprus. I hold a Doctorate in Fine Art practice since 2013, from the De Montfort University in UK. Previously to that I studied for my BA in Fine Art & Art History as a Fulbright Scholar in the USA, at the University of Texas, 2001-2005, and my postgraduate studies in the UK, at Central Saint Martins, UAL, 2005-2006, and the University of Northampton, 2007-2008.

Tutor Experience

I have taught both Art History and Fine Art for 8 years and I can guide students to develop their art portfolios for university entry, for IB Diploma Programme visual arts (process portfolio, comparative study and curatorial rationale), GCSE and A Level exams as well degree level.

I can also help with art history essays, academic and creative writing, personal statements, interview skills, university entrance, presentation/public speaking skills, development of proposals and dissertation writing.

Besides that I also work one-on-one with creatives professionals (artists, designers, writers and creative entrepreneurs) and guide them on their professional journey and creative process so they can solve a specific problem and achieve their goals. I can help with creative blocks, idea generating/brainstorming, gaining clarity & focus, motivation, dealing with procrastination, and professional presence.

"Thank you for all the help, couldn’t have done it without you! With the result I got I can apply to the universities I want to!" Matilda

"Hi Stella…I wanted to let you know that I’ve been offered a place at Sussex on the Art History course! The admissions tutor was very complimentary about my essay. I definitely could not have done it without your help. Thank you so much for your time, rigour and encouragement. You were so responsive and clear in your feedback to me. I wish you all the best for the future and perhaps we will run into each other sometime in the future! All the best to you, Kate." "I was lucky to find Stella as I had not had a proper art teacher in 2 years of my IGCSE course and I was months away from the final exam with only a few pages of work. Stella helped me tremendously by setting out clear guidelines of how to work, helping me with research and whenever I was stuck. I highly recommend her." Saachi "I was really struggling with my art history essay. I had no idea how to start and the deadline was in 10 days. Stella gave me constructive guidance and helped me get my ideas clear and structure my essay. I will definitely come back again in the future. Thanks a lot Stella!" Lucy
