Do you like my artwork?



The world is a work of art in and of itself. The idea of creating something beautiful and adding to it is quite fascinating, isn’t it? I always knew that I was meant to be a visual artist for as long as I can remember. My gift of creativity stems from both sides of my family and constant exposure to the world of visual art. Ever since my father taught me how to draw around the age of four, I loved creating art for art’s sake and self-expression.

As I matured, I became drawn to surrealism, realism, optical illusions, the abstract, and digital art. My creativity heightens whenever I am feeling intense emotions, which can be as beautiful as love, fascination, and captivation or as unpleasant as heartbreak, fear, and loathe. Some of my visual art may metaphorically express these emotions.

“What’s bad for your heart is good for your art” -Mariya Dondonyan

Nonetheless, I love to create enthralling images just to please myself and I enjoy the creative challenges that come with it.
