Born in Alexandria (Egypt), Persa (Cangelaris-Bergerat) settled with her family in Athens (1961), where she took lessons on graphic arts and studied painting with Antonis Apergis.  In 1975 she moved to Montreux (Switzrland), where she continued her studies in painting with Max Dissar and Bernard Blanc (later her second husband).  She had her first solo exhibition in Montreux (1988).  Other solo and group shows followed both in Switzerland and Greece.  She has illustrated posters and stage scenery.  She was awarded with the 1st Prize of the Art Forum Committee (1998), in Montreux.  In the limits of abstract and depictive painting, her work is distinguished by a strong symbolic character.  She is the sister of diplomat and collector Panayotis D. Cangelaris.  She is actually living and working in Trey (Switzerland).
