While born in Los Angeles, Anahid’s Armenian heritage penetrates her work in which women are a dominant subject matter. Her use of discarded materials are always an intricate part of her artistic expression that allows her to weave a tapestry of tradition, intimacy and power.

Obsessed with exploring and exploiting the not so pretty, the broken and discarded parts of ourselves and our surroundings, Anahid looks for the beauty in imperfections. The discolored, the torn, and the weathered. She finds worth to behold and explores those complexities in her art.
