My name is Luigina Ware and I am the artist who painted the pictures on this blog.

Of all the things I do (and there are many!) painting is my greatest love, the thing I can carry on doing all day and all night all my life.

That matches up well with my love of nature and of the beautiful place I live in, the island of Syros in the Cyclades.

I am originally from England and moved to Greece 5 years ago. I grew up in Chelsea where my parents ran a famous night-club on the King’s Road called the Gateways and some of my earliest memories are of mucking about on dusty paint-stained floors in artist’s studios. The club walls were covered in portraits of members made by some of the artists who sought inspiration in our smoky freethinking basement bar. So much of what I do is absorbed from that wall with it’s strange faces and pasted on mirrors.

If you like the pictures and would like to have one of a place or person (or even pet) you love I can and do work from photographs and would be more than happy to consider a commission to paint your home, business or favourite place. I am now accepting commissions for portraits.

PLEASE NOTE I NOW HAVE NEW WEBSITES at and where you can buy prints of Island and many other new works. Please come by and visit.



  1. I was sent this link by Michael, whom I know through Downside (I sort of live there as my wife teaches there.)
