Vartus Varadian is a graphic designer and art director who has worked for numerous advertising agencies, design studios, and companies in the Boston area. After a sudden cancer diagnosis years ago, Vartus turned to Chinese brush painting as a means of meditation. Her painting career started with taking classes at The Wellness Community of Greater Boston. Loving the process of painting and becoming proficient in this art has led her to teaching other cancer survivors so they, too, could find inspiration and calmness through painting.
Vartus has also discovered Wellness Warriors, an all-cancer survivors’ Chinese dragon boat racing team, which has helped her heal and regain her strength and confidence. She continues to refine her skills in painting and racing on the water with other cancer survivors.
