I was born and grow up in Shiraz, Iran, a city known in the Middle East for its rich History, Art and Culture. Starting at an early age, I was very passionate about drawing and painting, and became instantly obsessed with desire to learn more about Art and the different variations.
Due to lack of economic support for Art professionals, I enrolled at Shiraz University to earn my Bachelors degree in Computer Engineering which in turn allowed me to cover my expenses and opportunities to study painting and drawing taught by some of Iran’s recognized master Artists. Shortly after, I was working full time as a Computer Engineer and an Art Instructor.
In 2001, my family and I moved to United States of America and became instantly fascinated with the Midwestern landscapes. I decided to fully devote my time to Art and enrolled to obtain my Bachelors and Master’s degree in Fine Art. I have been locally recognized for my Art and won several awards in juried shows.
