I was born and raised in London - with a deep Iranian (Persian) heritage. As far as I can remember, I've always been profoundly connected with art, and the senses and emotions it played in my life. I am a self-taught artist, and have always been drawing and painting since childhood. It hasn't always been an easy journey, as at times I had swayed away from this root during complex and traumatic stages of my life; however, it was those experiences that brought me back to the place that I belong. As I have always found it difficult to express myself through the motion of speech, painting has served to always empower me to connect with myself on an extraordinary level. It has always been something unexplainable to me - from the way that I zone out, to the way I sense my spirit and mind connected on the same vibrations.
