Monique Kendikian-Sarkessian specializes in expressionistic landscape and still-life paintings. Her use of vibrant color, bold brush strokes, and expressive lines seek to recreate the emotion she feels as she is inspired by her subjects.
I’m passionate about the process of painting, how the paint glides on from one color to the next, and what happens when they meet. I love color and pattern and how the brush touches the canvas. Creating is a sacred process and my aim is to invite you, my guest, to take an intimate look through my eyes and hands via my canvases. I believe humans are given the desire to make and appreciate art to glorify their Creator and to fill their lives with beauty in ways no other worldly things can. A fabulous piece of art can radiate life, warmth, inspiration and peace to the viewer filling them with a sense of wonder and illumination. When collectors of my artwork tell me that they feel that way looking at my paintings, I know I am translating well.
