Haven means shelter, refuge or peaceful place.
As long as I can remember, visiting my village at an altitude of 1000m and hiking in the mountain was the only place that felt like home. The wonder you feel while gazing from a peak, the beauty of nature you witness as you walk through the woods, the sounds, the air and every last detail makes you feel complete.
The mountains is my haven, my peaceful place.
In one of those hikes I discovered a very special place. That is the Muses’ Plateau in mount Olympus, the highest mountain of Greece (2,917m). Nothing can describe this place with words but if you ever happen to get there, then you will know exactly what I meant.
That trip changed my life’s point of view and since then I wanted to create something and share it while the rest of you. Through my designs and illustrations I am trying to transfer those feelings than I get when I’m in my own haven. Adventure, nostalgia, wonder, inspiration, calm and love.
We are always searching for such places in our lives and some of us are lucky enough to find it early on, while others may never find it.
The mountains is not the only place people find peace, it can be a quiet beach, the park near your house, the view from a small balcony or the comfort of your cozy living room.
Haven isn’t only about places, it is also about all the other things that give us that feeling, that warmth.

Keep searching until you find your Haven.
