A trip to Nicosia from an artist's perspective

Our art inspired blog on 10 Things To Do In Larnaca takes us a little astray this week.

10 Things To Do In Larnaca, A Stroll Through Larnaca Town Through The Eyes Of An Artist

Dining Out in Larnaca from an artist's point of view

John, a customer, started this some time ago. Let me explain.

From Edward Hopper to Jack Vettriano, an artistic journey along the Larnaca coast

Through the eyes of an artist, let's take a drive along the Larnaca coast to seek out a few alternative places whilst visiting Cyprus.
