Born in Iran in 1984, raised within an Armenian family, I grew up in a multicultural environment. Moving back to Armenia as a teenager, I then quickly fell in love with arts in general. With the precious support from my family, I attended the prestigious Panos Terlemezyan State academy of Fine Arts of Yerevan.
Living abroad also helped adding layers of culture to my already complex background: first France where I met my husband, and now United States. I now have a studio in the historic district of college hill in Providence Rhode Island where I spend most of my creative time.

Throughout the years, oil and acrylic have been a natural answer to my art experience, but constant curiosity and trials in new materials made me encounter and study clays and glazes. This close-to-alive chemistry allows me to give my vision a new life, in different forms and dimensions. I often rely on my instincts to choose the material and mediums for my work.
My work is mostly abstracted vision of daily life, sometimes landscapes, sometimes figures and other times distorted objects and still life. I like to use vibrant colors and exaggerate the beauty of everyday things.
I like my viewers to wander through my paintings, find something that no one else did and keep searching.
