From an early age, I have always loved and appreciated art and wanted to create my own paintings. Born and raised in Iran, I pursued a degree in Chemistry, but I was always painting in my free time. Painting has been my passion as well as my form of therapy— enabling me to express my feelings and transfer them onto canvas and paper. I love to create different types of textures in my paintings, and I’m typically drawn to using bright colors. I work mainly with acrylics, watercolor, and also enjoy creating abstract paintings used in mixed media.
I live in Fishers, Indiana with my husband and our three daughters. We love to travel whenever we get a chance. From the Middle East to Europe to Africa, our travels have given me the opportunity to see different sceneries and to use this inspiration in my own work. In addition to traveling, nature itself inspires many of my paintings. Natural landscapes help me visualize new shapes and colors, and I love to capture light in different angles. My goal is to always portray real, life objects but with a twist—using my own imagination to give the viewer a new way to appreciate nature through my art. I’m part of the Carmel Art on Main Gallery, where you can find my canvasses of imagination and abstraction.
