Early life and education[edit]

Katrakis was born in 1980, December 16, in a family of Anatoliy Kushch-Katrakis and Helen Pilkevich-Kushch. Her father is a well known sculptor, author of many historical monuments in the United States, Iran, Libya, Ukraine and Poland,[8] residing in Kyiv, Ukraine. Her mother is an ethnographer and an art historian.[9] She officially took the double second name Kushch-Katrakis because of Greek legacy of her ancestors, who were Cretan and Pontic Greeks, migrated long ago to Ukraine, according to her father.[9]

Katrakis founded the International Academy of Arts in 2005[10] which is now based in Munich, Germany.
