I am an Iranian-American artist living and working in Bloomington. I specialize in abstract paintings as well as original works of Persian poetry that I publish in written form and perform in spoken word and literature. I am inspired by the potential in every person and the creative energy we all possess as humans. My paintings invite the viewer to wonder and to reflect, and they often spark a journey of self-discovery.My abstract paintings are called Talking Paintings because they “tell” you different things depending on your mood and how you look at them.
