Abundant shadows and a palette of vibrant colours
reflected in moonlight are my favourite painting elements for
creating still life using chalk pastel, ink, and colour pencil.
But for my nudes, I enjoy delivering them into an imaginary space
occupied with diverse ideas about human body while expanding
my range by adding mixed media as well.
A Leo painter born in ’72, I began at six
to colour my childhood expressions on drawing paper. I started
professional lessons at fourteen, continuing with collegiate
study of Graphic Design and received my B.F.A in 1996, followed
by M.F.A. in 1999.
My field of research on graphical layout and composition
ranged from Children’s paintings and film advertisements
to early 20th Century Russian posters and publications of the
Persian Qajar dynasty.
I have been residing in England since early 2001
where I have been seeking knowledge and expressing art through
competitive exhibitions in both physical and cyber space galleries.
Most of my new audiences are from Western Europe and North America
I discovered much of my work’s inspirations
from ten years of tutoring children in illustration and painting.
Playing classical guitar, xylophone and sol-fa, also stimulated
my creativity in presenting visual impressions.
