I’m Armenian, born and raised in Beirut, Lebanon. My family and I moved to Montreal in 1986, escaping the civil war. Although my education was in business, I’ve always had a great passion and keen interest in arts since my childhood. This prompted me to work for Heritage Decoys for 12 years, painting collectible decoy wildlife with acrylic. After moving to Toronto in 2001, I stopped working in the field of arts and found myself in the world of business. Although I stopped painting until recently, my passion to create has never faded. I’ve discovered my skills, painting with pastel and acrylic and have truly enjoyed bringing my visions to life. My love of nature and its limitless beauty inspires me. Now that I’m back to painting, there’s no stopping!
