The most beautiful moments of my childhood were those spent making my own toys with simple recycledmaterials or creating pottery with clay found around our house and coloring it with patterns, figures,and stories. Over the years, I have experienced different artistic mediums and technics, but I stayed loyal to my first passion which is telling stories. Story is to me like a bridge connecting the past with the present. It is a journey for which the only ticket is imagination. My aim, as an illustrator, is to awake this imagination. Having learned and practiced traditional Iranian painting made me dance with brushes and colors. The illustration college program enabled me to express myself in both digital and traditional art. Whenever I create an artwork for a customer, I dive deep into the concept and look for the story hidden behind it. No matter the technic (3D, painting, or drawing) and regardless of the purpose (book, magazine, poster), a well-told story has always the same effect, it connects people, times, and ideas. My biggest desire, as an artist, is to create those connections and to leave the trace of my stories to last .
