Embodying the Soul

Nia Tavlarides Stratos

Nia Tavlarides Stratos - Biography
 
Native Washingtonian, Nia Tavlarides Stratos's natural artistic ability was evident in her youth.  She was awarded a scholarship to The Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery, where her work was exhibited. Burlington Industries purchased her paintings to be used in textile design. She completed her undergraduate work at The University of Maryland where she participated in juried shows for painting and jewelry design. Nia designed her own line of jewelry, Evyenia Designs, with collections sold to boutiques and department stores such as Saks Fifth Avenue and Bloomingdales. She later became a partner in a Washington based advertising agency where her work garnered both regional and national awards.
Nia has participated in juried shows as well as successful solo shows in galleries and venues, such as The Ritz Carlton.  She is a published fine artist, whose work is held in both private and corporate collections, including VISA Card Corporation.
 She has mastered the use of color with palettes that range from harmonious, muted, conceptualizations to bold, iconoclastic expressions. She explores a rich synthesis of pattern and spatial composition, through various media and assemblage. Nia feels each composition is a mosaic of elements demanding amalgamation.  Every work of art provides a thoughtful vehicle to interpret texture and dimension and is an examination of color and style through the use of various media.
Nia is passionate about life. Spending time in her ancestral home of Greece has given her the opportunity to explore her Byzantine heritage.  Nia's work opens a window and reveals who she really is.
