Yanina stands out as an artist who chooses to express her thoughts and inner
world through her craft. After completing her four-year studies at the "Gyurjyan"
Institute of Applied Arts, she began her career at the Children’s Creative Center in
Hadrut in 2009. Her primary focus is on beadwork, where she skillfully crafts beauty using beads. Yanina speaks warmly of her time at the center, mentioning that she continues her work there to this day. The 44-day Artsakh war in 2020 compelled her to relocate to Yerevan, a decision she still reflects on with visible sadness. However, Yanina proudly shares that the Children’s Creative Center in Hadrut also transitioned its operations to Yerevan, ensuring that its staff could continue pursuing their passion, regardless of their location. This resilience fuels Yanina's ongoing dedication to her beloved beadwork. With heartfelt warmth, Yanina emphasizes that significant achievements have been realized over the past three years, underscoring the unwavering spirit and unbreakable will of those displaced from Artsakh. She attributes the enduring appeal of her work to her remarkable trait of never growing tired or bored of her craft. When asked what
distinguishes her work from that of other masters, she humbly responds: "I can't say, but mostly people appreciate my imagination and taste."
