I am a multidisciplinary Iranian-British artist.
My works reflect my experience as a migrant female artist living between different countries, cultures and languages.
I am interested in concepts such as identity, self and the sense of belonging. The inspirations for my works are tales and stories as well as everyday life experiences. I work with various media and techniques in my creative journey.
Born in Tehran, I migrated to Australia in 2003. My second migration was to the UK in 2011.
I have three master’s degrees in art and had group and solo exhibitions internationally. My works are kept in private collections in Canada, Australia and UK.
