Larisa Safaryan was born in Yerevan, Armenia. Larisa has never attended an art class. It's not a surprise, however, that she started creating after seeing the work of her father, Nairi Safaryan. She has a master’s degree in Psychology, and a second master’s degree in Public Management. These obviously have nothing to do with art. Her talent and passion for art resides inside her, until she beautifully displays it to the world through her carvings.
Larisa Safaryan claims that nature and people are her greatest inspiration. Without question, she is an innovator in what she does. Currently Larisa Safaryan lives and works in Los Angeles, California.
In 2016 Larisa Safaryan founded the Wood Symphony Gallery. Wood Symphony Gallery represents artists from around the world, focusing its efforts on the emerging field of fine contemporary wood art. To learn more about the gallery, please visit the Gallery website.
