Chris Miroyan spent her formative years in rural South Carolina. Though rated 48th in education at the time, surprisingly S.C. was second only to New York in the amount of government funding for the arts. Her early arts education gave her a solid foundation upon which she has built much of her worldview. She went on to study fine art at the California College of Arts in Oakland and at the University of CA., Santa Cruz. She currently lives and works in Aptos, CA.
"I believe our existence as human beings is inextricably linked, and the realm of our experience is universal. What we have are variations on common themes. In response to this, my paintings have become little secular “prayers” for humanity, and celebrations and reminders of our inseparable ties to nature. I incorporate narrative with color and pattern to reflect my love of folk art."
