Artist Statement:

Art is a moment in time when the mind lets go and imagination takes over. For the most part, I am stuck where the whimsical meets reality and color takes over. Layers and layers of color reworked, sometimes with the use of different media, other times, through the illusion of different textures build my compositions. Often, its merely an existential experience; with music playing in the background, I feel the colors and the mood. I am happy there, in that place, my safe place, where nothing else matters, my utopia. It’s also about documenting life; a message, a remembrance, or an ode to beauty. But whatever the flavor of the day is, it occupies the mind and finds its way into my work. 



Born in Iran, I left for college on the cusp of the Iranian Revolution to the United States when I was 18 years old. I received my B.A in Studio Art from Smith College in Northampton, MA. During my tenure at Smith, I focused mainly on painting, design and color theory. After earning my degree from Smith, I left for France and lived in Paris for a few years during which I took courses at the Ecole du Louvre and Sorbonne.


I eventually moved back to the US and settled in the Washington DC area. I worked in different entrepreneurial capacities. Once my children were older and had left for college, I started working professionally on my art. I established my studio and started receiving commissions. I began exhibiting both solo and in group shows.
