Elpida Panourgia

Storytelling through images is Elpida’s point of view of the world. Since Elpida was a child, has always believed that every image has a meaning and that there is an interesting story beneath every line drawn on a page. When Elpida grew up, she found that her purpose in life is to tell and convey stories through her animation and illustration art, so that people can get inspired to dream more, know themselves more and realize their own potential.
This purpose in life became the driving force for Elpida to pursue a higher education in design and animation that consists of a Bachelor of Arts (BA) Degree in Graphic Design from the TEI of Athens in 2013, a Master of Arts (MA) Degree in 3D Computer Animation from Bournemouth University in United Kingdom in 2015 and Screenwriting for Animation certificate in Vancouver Animation School in 2016. What is more, during the time period 2010 and 2015, Elpida worked in several group animation projects and also directed two personal 2D short animation films, called The teammate and Time and one 3D animation film called Dolphin. On January 2016, Elpida’s dream of creating her own castle of inspiration came true and Pencil Castle Pictures animation studio was created. Pencil Castle is now the place where stories and ideas come to life through images and Elpida is now the magician with a pencil, as she has always aspired to be.

 

Karin Drastik

Karin studied telecommunications in Germany. She works at Deutsche Telekom in Bonn for more than 25 years in several positions and departments.

In 2009 Karin discovered sculpting totally by accident and adopted it as her way to express and work through her own battles. After completing a study in sculptor’s art in 2011, she has found her own direction.

Karin’s sculptures tell the story of her journey. They show how when we dare to get to know ourselves, and to face our demons, sometimes even accepting them as part of ourselves, we can transform our lives. In fact, it is often through great struggle that we develop the most into fulfilled individuals. Her work reflects her own evolution.

All of us in ORAMIQUE, live this in one way or another. Robyn is the embodiment of this approach, while also reflecting our energy, joy for life and enthusiasm.
