Beauty Resides Within You!
Greetings and thank you for stopping by!
My Studio is located in Spring Bank of Rocky View County by the beautiful Rocky Mountains in Alberta Canada in which I design, paint, make patterns, teach and sew my textile arts. I was born and raised in Tehran, where I learned and fell in love with ancient Persian arts including Persian rug design, Persian Miniature, Tazhib, Persian carpet weaving, textile arts, and batik painting.
After graduating from my first bachelor of arts in textile and fashion design in year 2000 from University of Jahad Daneshgahi in Tehran, I immigrated to Canada and continued my journey as a textile designer, fashion designer, art and design teacher/Instructor for the past 18 years and had the opportunity to learn and appreciate western arts and cultures. I was also blessed to obtain a Bachelor of Education in Fine Arts and a Master degree in Computational Media Design both from the University of Calgary.
As a painter and textile artist, I find inspiration in fragments of nature, dreams, and visions I experience and in old forms of symbolic art-making in ancient Persia. I employ a personal vocabulary of soft and curvy movements, fluid marks and vibrant colors to express the beauty and happiness that resides in the natural world. Within this realm, my work varies from representational to abstract. I paint in watercolor, oil, acrylic, Batik on silk, and Mixed media. I tend to work in series by choosing a theme of inspiration and create a collection of the work in regard to the materials used.
My main two products are hand-painted luxurious silk scarves and unique high-quality leotards/bodysuits for gymnastics, synchronized swimming, and figure skating. I always use high-quality materials including high-quality silk, lycra, crystals, fabric dyes, fabric paints, high quality print-where applicable, to offer unique, one of a kind design to those who appreciate arts whether for self-usage or as a gift for someone special!
Thank you for visiting my page and many blessings!
