About me
Artist3_edited.jpg

I'm a Persian native and a lifelong observer of profound, beautiful subtleties. This penchant drew me to both architecture and painting.

 

I developed an interest in painting very early in life. I taught myself to drew and paint, reproducing works of Iranian, Dutch, English, and American masters.

As a young man, I relocated to England to further my education, where I earned a Ph.D. in Architecture and the Built Environment to pursue my professional aspirations. Even as I cultivated a rich and fulfilling professional career, my creative orientation and passion for painting remained strong.

Following my relocation to Seattle, I refocused my attention on artistic pursuits and now devote myself to painting full-time. For me, painting is an inspiring adventure that requires constant exploration, and demands both professional and personal growth.
