A widely traveled painter, muralist and sculptor, Lucy Boyadjian Janjigian, was born of Armenian descent in Jerusalem where she attended English Mission schools. She received her B.A. in Biology from Heidelberg University, Tiffin, Ohio, and her M.S. in Plant Ecology from Emory University, Atlanta, Georgia.
Painting became her passion and she developed into an award winning artist after many years of study at the Art Students League and the Stacy Studio Workshop in New York City.
All paintings are acrylic on canvas unless otherwise noted.
She is listed in “Who’s Who in American Art.” In 1986, Lucy won First Place in Abstract Acrylic Painting at the National Arts Club, New York, NY.
