Arminee Shishmanian


 Clay, paint, pastel and collage - when my interest is piqued by a new medium, I often will experiment with it to see if it would make a good addition to my repertoire.  I enjoy creating a variety of artwork, from still life paintings to figurative sculptures.  As an artist I have had many opportunities to share the wonder I find in the world around me, from the simplest to the most majestic forms, and am fortunate to have had the training to express these findings through art.  My works are influenced by my faith, my Armenian heritage and the world around me.  These forces drive my style of artistic expression.
