"I am fascinated and inspired by nature, the space and celestial features. I have grown up in an area in my country, where I was surrounded by several abundant mines, mountains, forest and open sky. My favorite walk is to the forest and near the old mines digging for some amazing pyrite and other raw beauties that could be surprisingly found in those areas. I have been collecting stones from all over the world all my life. I totally love crystals, rocks & minerals, stones and the creation of artistic jewelry with them. The creation time is like meditation to me. During the creation procedure, the feeling of the energy of nature flowing through my creations is so magic, makes me feel like I have become one with the universe. " Stalo

Painting since a kid, Stalo Xinari has evolved her own techniques and style during the years. Using acrylics on stretched canvas, emotions and detail, she crafted a vivid world inspired by Nature, her surroundings and life experience. Her paintings are there to remind that despite all the ugliness in this world there is something beautiful. Art. 

Playing music at parties when teenager back then with cassettes and vinyl, Stalo had a great passion for music. She has learned some guitar and keyboards during that stage. Later in 1994, she is resident morning show and evening guest Dj on Radio1, a local radio station in Nicosia steaming live on fm. As an artist she was driven away from mixing in 2005 and got into Electronic music production. Till now she has been guest in many local parties and gatherings and in many international & online events. She has release 25+ tracks on 6 EP Albums and more on various artists’ compilations and various records companies and more to come. Her music artist name is SXtheMadArtist (Visit music store).

On 2007 “theArtConcept” gallery opened at Nicosia, the capital of Cyprus, organizing exhibitions and events all around the years hosting many artists local and international. On 2010 the gallery turned into Stalo Xinari Private Art studio and moved into new location.

Since 2005, she is involved in digital art and graphic design also. Being self taught, she always thinks out of the box with the result to differentiate and uniquely stand out. It started on 1994, at the age of 16 when she was chosen to design her first project, a book for herbal cosmetics. Hand pencil design of flowers, herbs, human parts like hands, hair, legs and body always within the framework of the writers’ ideas and concepts. The book has been printed in magenta color and colorful front cover.
Right after that project, Stalo has left the island and moved to UK to finish her Bachelor of Arts, in Business Administration major Marketing, at the University of Sunderland. When she came back she got involved with household and fashion industry management, marketing, advertising, promotion and logistics. 

On 2010 Stalo Xinari is member and the Official Designer for FEMALE IN THE ARTS (FITA). She has being part and member of many artists groups and into several art projects and exhibitions. She has also worked on various design projects like conceptual design for music market like album cover arts, event posters and brochures. She has also being involved in multiple design projects for corporate clients and organizations, designing promotional material for publications and promotional tools.

Jewelry Design is Stalo’s another love. She is crafting jewelry since her teenage years and at the age of 15 she manage to sell her small jewels in a local handicraft shop called “the Craft Shop” in Makarios Avenue in the capital of Cyprus, Nicosia.

On 2014, she has open the SXtheArtConcept online shop on Etsy. Today, her collection includes jewelry with wire, clay jewelry, braided and beaded jewelry. All her pieces are handmade using her imagination and the magic energy of natural stones. She uses various materials mostly natural stones, rocks & minerals, air drying clay, polymer clay (for key-chains / key-rings), wood, sterling silver, metal wiring and metals. She is also experimenting with other materials she came up to. At the end of the day uniqueness is the hyper reason so why not to invent new ways and stuff?
All her clay jewelry are free hand sculpted and are not baked. Due to the long procedures the clay must go through in order to dry, paint and varnish in layers to make it durable and water resistant, it usually takes around one month for every piece to be finalized. All her pieces are one of a kind and cannot be re-created or repeated. Every piece of her clay jewelry is considered work of art.
