Biography

I have a bachelor degree in textile printing and design from Elm-o-Farhang University. Since I finished my education I started working at University with two master (Prof. Gangineh and Prof. Khavian) in Textile silk screen print and batik print for two years. Then I became part time instructor in batik painting and silk screen printing on fabric until now. In addition to solo and collective exhibition I have experience in educating different types of print and paint techniques on fabrics in few Universities such as : Elm-o-Farhang, Jihad Daneshgahy, Charm University, Shariaty University and some galleries in Tehran. Right now I am studying MA in Textile design at Elm-o-Honar University in Yazd-Ardakan. I received a letter of appreciation from art director of Tafakor Gallery in 2006 for my solo exhibition about textile art. Also I had three interviews about my area of expertise with Zarih magazine in 2004, Young journalist club in 2004 and Hamshahri newspaper in 2005. From three years ago I started my own women clothing collection for occasional events based on tribal gothic style with inspiration of Iranian Nomads with mixed media textile techniques.

Artist statement

As a child my biggest challenge was my loneliness that I used to distract myself of it by listening to stories of Koran and Torah from my grandmother and used to imagine the topics and character if forms and shapes which used to transform to dresses and little weird art projects by ordering to my mom to make them for me.
Growing up by losing loved ones around me my loneliness became magnified and transformed to a decision. I made my art a sanctuary for my wounded soul and became a lover of any kind of art at any time of life even in my sleep. I see the world in a concept of different textures and colors that is moving on to a destination that no one knows.
