It has been said that Ms. Golian "has a dramatic flair for life and is that rare person who can truly be called a modern Renaissance Woman." Indeed, a couple of years ago she picked up the paint brush and has been creating wonderful oil paintings since. Carla Golian is notoriously known as Paulo Coelho's The Witch of Portobello, for having won the Experimental Witch Film Competition in which she stars as the protagonist of the novel, Athena. She produced and executive produced the short film.

Ms. Golian also wrote, produced and stars in Don't Gag Me!, a short comedy. Online streaming is available on Amazon Video.

Besides painting and reading, she has an affinity for children and nature. Ms. Golian is of Armenian descent and lives in Los Angeles. Read more about her under her nom de guerre, Carolena Sabah,
