About the development of my artwork

I am painting since I was 10 years old. Most paintings made during my stay in Germany were in cubism- and impressionism style with tendency to paint in oil painting or water color (aquarel).

Following my stay in Germany I came back in 1993 to Iran where I invented oil painting on natural mat material. This material gives a natural depth in the paintings and a mosaic effect. After this invention I did most of my art work in traditional building style.

My later paintwork exists mostly of images of Iranian women, dressed in different Iranian traditional dresses which presented the Iranian traditional female culture.

Since 2006 I was mainly concentrated at my jewelry design, which combines different old precious stones with pieces of antique gold and silver jewelry.
