Athanasia Vayianou BFA

Athanasia Vayianou, was born in Limassol, Cyprus. The island’s politically charged history had an impact on everyone growing up there, her response was to develop an awareness and appreciation for family, history, and nature. Having access to art classes and creative studies all throughout her secondary schooling, it became a way of expressing herself. Moving to Canada and enrolling at NSCAD University, Vayianous discovered her love of Art and History and a passion for Metalsmithing. She graduated in 2017 with a BFA majoring in Jewellery Design and Metalsmithing and is currently a resident in the airCRAFT residency at the Centre for Craft.
