I get inspired by people, their lives, their stories, and how these experiences are reflected in character shown in their face. Using graphite pencil, which gives a black and white portrait, I aim to capture the essence of their personality, for the viewer.

Being Persian, I have a huge cultural heritage of art and art history from that region. I now work from my studio in Merrilands.
