    Sizanna Janashvili was born in Georgia (Former USSR) in an artistic family. Her father, Mordechai (Misha) Janashvili was a renown painter. He was Sizanna's mentor.

    Sizanna has lived in the USA since 1974 and her work has been exhibited in solo exhibitions in New York and New Jersey. Her works are represented in many private collections in the United States, Italy, Switzerland, Georgia and Israel.

    Sizanna's reputable service and exceptional output has been well received by the public and has earned her celebrity clientele as well. Some of the notable celebrities are the late Tejano musician, Selena and latin recording artist, Luis Miguel (both of which have made the cover of a well known hispanic national publication, Osmus). She has also done portraits of a well known and prominent family, Adele and R.Brinkley Smithers (patrons of Smithers Drug and Alcohol Rehabilitation Center). This portrait is prominently displayed in their foundation. Yet another portrait of great composer Eubie Blake is displayed in Forest Hills High School, in Queens, New York.

    In 1997 was invited by Georgia's First Lady Nanuly Shevardnadze to do a charity exhibition for an international society, "Women of Georgia for Peace and Life." It was a phenomenal success. Her works are in the permanent collection of Edward Shevardnadze's foundation "Democracy and Revival."
