I’m so happy to share with you a bit about myself! As a woman of Iranian lineage (with a subcontinental flavor) it is with wonder that I now reside in these beautiful misty Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia with my family,  where I work with mixed media, adventuring as an artist.

My paintings are explorations in color, energy, and visual storytelling, to which I often bring my engagement with the plant world in the form of rock and flower essences, lovingly crafted during different phases of the moon with spring water infused by solar flame.

An integral part of how I apply myself as an artist is to weave the threads of different creative interests together as layers in paintings,  often following curiousity toward expression. My aspiration is for my creations to give inspiration and a sense of joy to those who behold them, opening a door from where to enter and dream in partnership with the art.

I invite you to reach me with queries, requests, a simple hello, or conversations by using the contact form or directly at her facebook page, where I also publishes poetry.

To know a mountain
Hug its curves, its ups and downs
Inside springs gurgle
