I was born hearing impaired on the opposite end of the world, in Armenia. I remember watching my parents’ mouths move, as I observed how the lips moved pronouncing every single letter. I have learned to lip-read. My powerful eyes have enabled me to observe and understand the world where my ears have failed me. However, the silence surrounding me still made me isolated and lonely. I began to withdraw and escape deeper into my inner world.
As I was exploring my young universe, I made drawings and sketches of things I saw, slowly becoming an artist and a storyteller. Eleven year later, my family and I mover to Japan where I received my first hearing aids. In the 1995 my family and I moved to USA To this day my paintings are based on abstract, surreal, fantasy, universe, and the spiritual subject matter and storytelling that I find in my imagination and other worlds. My current art has a lot of movement, bright and contrasting colors, three dimensional subjects, sense of space, sense of balance, symmetry, light and shadow, depth, perspective,
