Ioanna ASIMENOU
Paintings & ceramics

Born in 1976, Ioanna Asimenou comes from the island of Skyros, the largest island of the Nothern Sporades in the Aegean sea. Inspired by the unique Skyrian tradition in ceramics, she has studied painting and mosaic at the School of Fine Arts in Athens.

Her passion for the very popular Skyrian pottery and woodcarving art combined with the unique architecture and interior decoration of Skyrian homes made her return to Skyros. She now runs two well established shops selling Skyrian traditional ceramics, typical Skyrian house wear that she designs, fires, glazes and paints herself her workshop is also equipped for the glazing and firing stages. Her work is so successful that she now exports ceramics to Tokyo, Japan.

In 1998, Asimenou participated to several exhibitions abroad - Paris, Copenhagen, Brussels and Berlin - representing her native island with her own traditional ceramic creations. In 2004 she also held a large painting exhibition in Skyros. Finally, in 2005 she painted some unique oil works - with fitted ceramic pieces - in aid of the endangered Skyros horse. Thereafter, her artwork was presented in several HORSE ART exhibitions in Greece - Skyros, Corfu, Athens and now the Olympic Equestrian Centre in Markopoulo.
