I was born in Cairo Egypt, on June 1, 1948. Both of my parents were Armenian. My father, was a Christian Armenian Orthodox Priest. He founded a treatment center for the poor. He was also an artist. My mother was a Missionary in the community, she gave charity to people in need. I skipped several grades and attended Leonardo da Vinci Italian Fine Art School at age 15 where I learned my 5th language, Italian. Growing up in Armenian school I was taught English, French, Arabic and Armenian. During my years attending Fine Art school, I was a Sunday School teacher at the Armenian Church. I also sang in the church choir. I migrated to Canada at age 21 and attended French fine art school, École des beaux-arts de Montréal to earn my teaching credentials to teach art. I taught high school art in Canada for a few months. At age 26, I left to become a US citizen and a year later attended California State University. I earned a bachelors degree and single subject teaching credentials in art. I excelled in Spanish language, which became my 6th language. My tutorials on face and figure drawing were published in the California art textbooks in Spanish. I taught art in elementary and high school for a few years, and then left to open my own gallery. After running my own gallery for 6 years, with the help of my daughter, I transitioned my business into spiritual life coaching online. I left California and lived in Washington state for several years, and then moved to Boise Idaho in 2013 to live in my dream home which is my creative sanctuary. I live with my daughter and she helped me to make my dreams come true, to run our business on our own. I work from home full time as an artist and successful spiritual life coach. I have given over 150,000 spiritual consultations. I create new art everyday and I encourage others to embrace God by tapping into their own creativity.
