Project Description

I draw inspiration from the tribal art of my native Iran, particularly the abstract animal images depicted in the the kilim and gabbeh rugs of that culture. I am also taken with the sweeping wonder of Marc Chagall’s works, the striking contrasts of Northwest Native American art, and the lyrical patterns visible in Japanese art. Having said this, I usually don’t pick and choose my inspirations, but realize these traces have been parts of my psyche that emerge intuitively as I paint.
