Hi there. Welcome to my page!
A little bit about me: I'm a Canadian born, Iranian-American, raised in Atlanta, Georgia, but currently residing in the heart of Washington, D.C. I was a Studio Art major for half of my time as a student at Georgia State University, but ended up completing my bachelors in Biology, with a minor in Chemistry. However, my passion for the arts continues.
My love for visual art runs deep, ever since my mother signed me up for my first oil painting class at the age of 10. Since then, I've dabbled in all sorts of mediums and enjoy the freedom of doing what I love most when I'm not at my day job. I am humbled to have been recently awarded "Best in Show" at the August 2019 exhibit of The Art League Gallery in Alexandria, VA, for my experimentation with fiber and tapestry weaving.
I'm drawn to images that illicit a retro mood and I aim to capture that feeling in my work. My process of creating art is not usually meticulously planned, but rather roughly improvised. I hope to grow and evolve more with each passing day by bringing present awareness into my practice of art.
