I was born and raised in Iran. I began painting at Tehran art university. My style draws upon elements of traditional Persian painting (Persian Miniatures), the “flatness” and unique composition of which are surprisingly contemporary. After getting my BFA, I studied Graphic Design at TM university in Tehran. Meanwhile, I started working as a freelance illustrator. Over the past 10 years, I have illustrated more than 30 children’s books in Turkey and Iran and all the time I was trying to tell my story with my special language, picture language. My works have been shown in exhibitions and book fairs in Iran, The Emirates, South Korea, and here in Canada.
Also thinking about freedom and social justice in my country and in the whole world lead me to express what I’m feeling through my artworks.
