I was grew up in Tehran. In 1991, I began painting at an art university. After getting my BFA, I studied Graphic Design at TM university in Tehran. Meanwhile I started freelancing in illustration, beginning with children’s magazines and books. Over the past 10 years I have illustrated more than 30 children’s books in Turkey and Iran and a great number of my illustrations have appeared in Iranian children’s magazines. My works had been exhibitions and book fairs in Iran, the Emirates and South Korea. Recently I ‘ve moved to Toronto and hope to know other artist here, make connections and have a chance to continue my artistic way here...

Thoughts About Art and Community

Every artist is able to have a unique idea and impact on own society, makes artists family bigger, positive and powerful . Because every single of my life I was inspired from and also dedicated the idea of freedom and try to show my story in my artworks I can have a valuable rol on my community and all Toronto.
