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.
