Born and raised in the historical city of Isfahan in Iran, I began painting at a very young age and carried my love for the arts throughout my busy professional and personal life. My work often reflects my connection, respect, love, and appreciation for the creation as it is the essence of the Creator that holds, binds and brings about compassion for humans. I teach art and I encourage my students to use art to nurture their inner creative voice and to escape from everyday stress to a richer and balanced life. I have earned recognition and awards on a regional level and my works have been selected in local groups and solo art exhibits in Washington, DC Metro area. 50% of the proceeds from selling my art work will empower those in need.
