I was born in 1973, and have loved painting since my childhood. I began painting as academic learning with my first professor, Ayedin Aghdashloo (http://www.aghdashloo.com), in 1987. After 5 years, in 1992, I started working and practicing as a portraitist and cartoonist artist in public, and also enjoyed making caricatures. After some years, I felt the need to learn more techniques so pursued and passed more courses with other teachers. I then began painting as my profession in 1993. I spent a lot time for drawing portraits and caricatures with pencil, pencil color, charcoal and pastel color, but also did many water colors, oil paintings and acrylic paints as well.
Now I live in Grand Rapids Michigan, U.S. and would be happy and glad to paint for you! Enjoy browsing my “Gallery” of previous work.
