This is just one little corner of the village of Lefkara. The village it’self dates as far back as 1134 but what I loved about this corner is that at the other side of the arch you can still see the old town water outlet where the villagers used to get their daily supply of […]

This is a wonderful little corner from the old city of Kyrenia, my inspiration was an old black and white photo from the 1940s but my love for this place originates from the time we use to visit here with my family as a little kid up until 1974. The magic of the old port […]
One of my favourite parts of the world. On a dark winters day in Sydney when you find yourself craving for sun and light, Rome comes to mind. Mind you Cyprus is not too far behind but today I thought to paint something different. I hope you like it.
I am so sad that some of the most pristine wilderness areas in Cyprus are on fire. Even though Cyprus frequently suffers forest fires during its hot summer months, this time we have also suffered the first firefighter deaths for years. It’s a very sad time for this amazing place our hearts are with the […]
Just around the corner from Famagusta Cathedral there’s this wonderful little street. There’s a coffee shop at the end of the street and the man on the bike is the coffee shop owner delivering coffee using the traditional tray and his old Hercules bike. It’s a scene that you could see everywhere in the past […]
Very early this morning I set off to Famagusta to visit this wonderful medieval Cathedral. It was built in 1328 and it still retains all its grandeur and beauty to this day. It originally was Saint Nicholas’s Cathedral but later converted into a mosque during the Ottoman empire. I was very lucky as the whole […]

Hi, my name is Savva and I am a watercolour artist. It has been my passion right from the start. From the first time I put brush to paper. I love everything about watercolour but most of all, its unpredictablility. It has a mind of its own but if you allow it, oftentimes it will paint for you. No other medium will do that or give you the same buzz that watercolour does. The most engaging of all media.
