I am a formally trained illustrator and fine artist from Los Angeles, CA. Born in Yerevan, Armenia in 1983, I immigrated to the USA at the age of six with my family and earned a BFA in Illustration from Art Center College of Design in 2005.
My artwork is inspired by the metaphysical – E.T.s, aliens, spirits, ghosts, intergalactic space creatures, ethereal beings, anything that hints at the idea that we are just a small part of the unimaginably vast Universe.
I have exhibited worldwide for over a decade, from Billy Shire‘s La Luz de Jesus gallery in Los Angeles to Takashi Murakami‘s Hidari Zingaro gallery in Tokyo.
My illustrations have been commissioned by BunnyEars.com, SONY BMG, Spin, Rolling Stone, Publicis Mojo, Diesel, Honda, Mighty Fine, Sydney Symphony, Young Guns, Crispin Porter & Bogusky, Saatchi & Saatchi, Weiden & Kennedy London, GQ, Men’s Health, among others.
My awards include numerous American Illustration and Communication Arts awards, as well as Gold Ozzie Award, SILA, and Eckersleys Award.
I currently live in sunny Southern California with my husband and two dogs. When I’m not painting, I am making webcomics and training in martial arts.
