This auction is raising proceeds for War Child UK
I'm a 4th generation artist who grew up in a house full of multidisciplinary artists that strongly influenced my work. I'm first-generation Armenian-American and elements of my heritage and identity are often found in my work.
My process is very spontaneous - my artwork is unplanned and starts with a urge to create. I start with a blank sheet of paper and then I let go and see where my hand and my mind take me. In a world that often leaves me feeling anxious, apathetic, and frustrated, my artistic process allows me to be the best version of myself -- through the exploration of my subconscious I become someone who is focused, creative, passionate, hopeful, connected and calm. I strive to bring the same feelings to those viewing my art.
