Demetra has long been a wino intrigued with body art, and took the leap towards a tattoo backpiece in June of 2006, at the age of thirty one.
New York City based artist and veteran tattoo magician Eddie Molina put in over thirty hours of tattooing in six months to complete her Japanese Phoenix. They eventually fell in love, moved to Upstate New York, married, and opened The Hand of Fate Tattoo Parlor in Ithaca, New York. Once settled in, Demetra took a part-time side job at a local winery just for fun…and became obsessed with the hard work of being a cellar rat, a field hand, a wine maker! Eventually that love started dragging locals and visitors to tasting bars, and the rest is in the books.
She is now a social media (local) wine aficionado that travels far and wide with her husband, often to conventions and shops around the world. Boozylife.com is her attempt to imbibe locally sourced beverages and spread the word to other like-minded individuals. Wineries, Vineyards, Distilleries…none will be safe. DRINK LOCAL, no matter WHERE you are! The happy couple is based out of Ithaca, in the Finger Lakes region of Upstate New York. They have four dogs, a messy house, and an awesome existence.
