Who is Tonia ?
Born and raised in Athens, Greece, in a family where the tradition fights the modernization, she developed a stylish, but also faithfully traditional creative personality. She was involved with painting, muisic, dance and design of faux jewelry since her childhood, but science was the one who won her at adolescence. She graduated from the Faculty of Biology, University of Patras and continued her postgraduate studies in Bioinformatics, in Program of Informatics for Life Sciences, Department of Medicine. After having met her learning aspirations she returned to Athens, settled near the sea along with Simba and devoted all her energy in designing her jewelry line called 'tonino'. This was just the beginning to unfold again all her creative pursuits. She founded 'tonino.gr', an online store and personal blog, a lifestyle platform for internet explorers, crafters and fashion fans. She publishes about her creative moments and adventures, while she presents her personal line.
