Born in August 1991 in Tehran, Iran I became very passionate about painting, art and beauty at the age of 4. Fortunately my Mom was very supportive and accommodating until the passion dried out before I was 10 due to family issues and my migration afterwards.

Through the absence years of painting, I was drawn to photography. I got my first own camera at the age of 15 and have been capturing the moments persistently since then. Painting desires came back to me again in 2011 at the age of 19 in Dubai, when a room-mate of mine moved out and left her acrylic paints behind..

So it started all over again. 


   I have been practicing and learning only by myself and have never taken any courses neither for painting nor for photography. I only went on the first class of a drawing course at the age of 11 and then the master wanted me to draw only certain things (and not what was going on in my mind) so I quit after the first day! 

Anyways, I have collected for you here, some of my visual art works through out the years 2011 to Present. 

Aside from beauty, I am inspired by the duality and oneness, the light and the darkness, the two opposing poles in people and things. I want my work to tell the story of what I learnt life to be.
