University Postgraduate Degrees
In November 2017 after the completion of the two-year-approved programme in Creative Writing, I earned an MFA – Master of Fine Arts from Kingston University, UK (Merit).
Back in 1985 I have received an MA – Master of Arts in the Theory and Practice of Literary Translation (School of Comparative Studies) fro& m the University of Essex, UK  (Distinction).

I remain a strong advocate of continuous education without underestimating the values of hands-on, practical, interdisciplinary learning and independent research, as well as in site investigation and photographing.

Reading and getting familiar with different cultures as well as practicing the arts & crafts improves greatly the resilience in life’s hardships as well as compassion.

Learning this language of arts and being close to nature are sources of pleasure and inspire connection with space and time as much as commitment to loving relationships.
