Vicky Zomenou

Vicky Zomenou started learning metalsmith techniques and art jewelry in Athens around  2006. Vicky originally studied computer science and innovation technology management. In 2014, after 25 years in the corporate world she decided to escape and in September 2016 she created her company, Porpe Artifacts, in order to  pursue what she loved most, art jewelry. She lived in England traveled around Europe and now she lives in Seattle, WA. “Art making, for me, is an escape from everyday life, and a safe place to be. When I am into the creative & making process, expressing myself in unique ways, exploring, observing and learning is important. I get a lot of inspiration from nature, symbols and stories. I feel that, most of the times, my work is more sculptural, due to my Greek origins, and I love combining materials such as silk, stones, colors, wood, glass, steel wire with metal, due to my love for contemporary design and urban style.”
