Hi there!

I am Virginia Diakakis, the artist behind The Greener Pastures.

I am also Sophia's mom, a stage designer, a playwright, the best friend of a lazy dog named Satsi and the slave of an evil cat genius called Waterloo.
I love life’s irony, black humor, strange people and the good old times.

All of my work reflects the state of mind I am when I make it and I feel very connected with each illustration.Artistically my work is highly inspired by Victorian imagery, vitriolic humor, Art Nouveau as well as antique Japanese illustrations, tarot cards and anything quirky that draws my attention.

I use symbols and animals to interpret human nature, together with thoughts transformed into words.
All of these conspire in order to depict human and familiar situations through a bitter-sweet filter balancing between childhood innocence and a dark fairy tale. My goal is to provoke, puzzle but also amuse the viewers of my work.

Thank you for taking the time to read 'The Greener Pasture's ' little story. I hope you enjoyed it. 

Please don't hesitate to contact me for any questions or specifications 

Virginia Diakakis was born and raised in Athens, Greece. She studied Graphic and Interior design in Greece, subsequently stage design in the Fine Arts Academy in Florence, Italy
