You grew up with both Mexican and Armenian cultures. Tell us more about that!
I attended Armenian preschool and then public elementary, middle school and high school (and took after-school Armenian classes throughout the years). I practiced ballet, tennis, gymnastics and even joined the volleyball team. At 12, I started painting classes at a local art studio and to this day I work at my art studio surrounded by kids, colors and art.
Growing up, my brother and I usually spent 9 months in LA and 3 months in Mexico visiting my grandparents. During summer vacations, we attended a summer camp where we played sports, learned Spanish and travesuras. Christmas holidays were always fun getting together at my great grandma's house with all the familia enjoying delicious food and traditions.
When did your passion for art begin?
It began when I walked inside of Modest Fly Art Studios in 2012.
How does art help you in your life as a young adult, and also during difficult times like what we are currently experiencing?
Art helps me by allowing me to express myself and also calms me down when I really get into it.
What do you enjoy about being a part of the Spiritú community?
I love the beautiful messages and stories they post and also the amazing Spiritú boxes!
