My only motivation to paint is the pleasure that I get from the painting process. I feel good with my characters which are sweet, nice, stylish, and most of all, very human. I always work, even when I have no pencil or paintbrush in my hand, every look, every move, every word, every passerby, everything around me fill up my painter’s treasury. I refine my characters, I take away the malice, the bitterness, the gray veil of daily hassles, and they continue their life in my paintings, in serenity and happiness.
Born in 1959 in Yerevan, Armenia, SarÃƒÆ’Â© graduated from the National Academy of Fine Arts in her hometown. Along with her job as a set designer (over 40 productions in theater and 4 in cinema), she explored several techniques to give life to her characters, ranging from ceramics to bronze sculptures, through etching and monotype. Since her moving to Paris in 1991, she devoted herself almost entirely to oil painting. Her works are in many private collections and museums.
