Lusine Saakyan Art

Artists’ creativity works in mysterious and paradoxical ways. Creative thinking is a stable defining characteristic in some personalities but it may change based on situation and context.  My inspiration and ideas often arise seemingly out of nowhere and then fail to show up when needed.   Creative thinking requires emotional outbursts, imaginative journey, and distinct from the thinking process and I embrace it wholeheartedly.

Inspiration:  I find inspiration in life in its good and challenging days.  I find nature and the universe inspiring.

How I started

Difficult personnal issues and the turmoils of the time period of my life have landed me with a blank white 24 by 18 inch stretched cotton canvas, a few hand-down acrylic paints, and brushes that I purchased from a local discount store.  Just the feel of brushstrokes on the canvas was so relaxing and therapeutic that I didn’t even realize how my first piece of work came together.  I found art healing. I found myself painting almost every day after work.   Painting, creating, and discovering ways to express myself presented me with vibrant energy to deal with everything else that was taking place around me.  I organized m first solo art exhibition in February of 2015 with 37 unique original pieces and sold 8 of my artworks that first evening,  Since then I continued painting, held two additional solo shows as well as participated in group exhibitions.  In 2021 I left my stable job and career as an Educator of young children for the past 20+ years to fully devote my time to my passion.
