Hi There

Filio Kondylis was born in the big city of Montreal, Quebec and raised in the small town of Langley, British Columbia. While growing up she enjoyed road trips with her family, joined the school gymnastics team, played soccer, taught herself to draw, wrote poetry & prose, and liked to photograph her surroundings.

Filio’s determined nature came in very handy while completing a four-year diploma program in visual arts at the Emily Carr Institute of Art & Design. It took fifteen years of studying part-time while working part-time and raising a son to reach her goal of graduating.

While attending Emily Carr, she worked with various non-profit art organizations and it was during this time she developed teaching, administrative, programming, and management skills. As curator for a community art  gallery in the Fraser Valley, she further developed her writing, communication and promotional skills while organizing fundraisers, exhibitions, educational programs, and community initiatives.

In 2009 Filio moved to Montreal to take on new challenges. While there she completed level 4 in a French language program and furthered her marketing skills as a social media coordinator and content writer for a profit consulting company.

She is currently back on the west coast and residing in the lower mainland of British Columbia.

  1. Glad to connect with you Filio!
    I thought the post on Tweeting your way to Success had a lot of good info. (Articles that help us to recognize good avenues for marketing are always appreciated—probably more than any others.)
    I also enjoy the “philosophical” ones like The Artist & Isolation, & The Stories we Tell Each Other. ( I guess I like getting insights into my own artistic nature.)
    I’d like to see more of your work, too; I’m sure it’d be inspirational to know what motivates you, how you felt when you were doing the work or what it’s aim was—& of course any techniques you’d like to share.
    I think posts that encourage artists just to keep going are very important to all of us out there who are struggling to find our niche, or simply to survive financially.
    Hope something here helps; sure don’t want to see you give up on this blog.

    • As always, you are a source of inspiration. Thank you for your thoughtful and helpful advice. I look forward to sharing my work with you and will think about more helpful promotional posts I can write.

  2. Hi Filio; I miss your posts. I hope everything is okay.

    • Hi! I’m so glad you stopped by to say hi. I’ve missed it too. The problem is I’ve hit a wall. I want to continue, but feel things need to evolve. The question I’m trying to answer is can I stay relevant and helpful. I’m thinking of showing more of my own work as well… which posts have been the most helpful for you K?

  3. I don’t think I ever mentioned this, but I really like your icon/gravatar; very striking .

  4. Of course we went to the same school… sounds like we have a lot more in common.

  5. You are an amazing , talented person. It’s a joy to share your world!

Please share. Inspire others and increase your visibility through participation.
