Anet is an inspiration not only to me as a fellow artist, with her talent, strength and her perseverance in achieving her goals, but she is an inspiration to many woman out there, young and old, who are hoping to make their mark and achieve independence playing their part in creating functional art.
Like most Armenians born in diaspora, my life consisted of living in multiple countries and experiencing various cultures from an early age till today.
My journey began in Lebanon, then Iran, followed by England, ending in the US, collecting morsels from each country’s unique cultural and visual identities that shaped the language I can express myself best with today, which is the language of ART, specifically wearable art.
Even though my main jewelry line “SADISTICA” has a darker and more thought provoking undertone, I needed to express certain aspects of my thoughts with a simpler vocabulary from which “Sadistica Contemporary” was born with singular objective of speaking volumes with not too many words.
If my past has taught me anything, it has been that life is transitional and nothing is permanent. One needs to change and adapt while staying true to one’s self, paying attention to what present times demand of you, hearing your calling in the quietness of your soul.
