About

Chrysovalantou is an Australian watercolour artist, residing in the inner west suburbs of Sydney.Inspired by a wide range of subjects, she produces artworks of subjects including: landscapes, street scenes, animals, flowers and seascapes. Her work is exhibited around NSW, where she has won numerous awards and prizes for her watercolour paintings. Drawing and creating has been since my youth, Chrysovalantou was able to feed this when studying fashion illustration, while completing a fashion design and textiles degree at the Whitehouse Institute of Design. Later pursuing a career in the fashion industry for 10 years, "Val" traded the daily graphic drawing for a pencil and paints again and turned my sights to my most admired mediums – watercolor.She is a member of the Drummoyne Art Society, painting from her studio and occasionally tutoring students wanting to learn this beautiful medium.
