Dimitra Psychogyou was born and raised in Chalkida. Since she was a child, she liked to make things with her hands and read fairy tales. In 1990, she enrolled in the VAKALO school where she studied graphic design & decoration. In 1994, a spring trip took her to Crete where she stayed for 13 years, until 2008, teaching painting to children and adults. She studied Hagiography with Giorgos Kordis, an art that greatly influenced her. Since 2004, she entered the magical world of fairy tales and realized that each of us has a special way of talking about the things we love. And her way is fairy tales. Since 2009, she has been teaching painting and sewing in her workshop and painting shoes!
