I was born on April 24, 1951, in Tehran, Iran. I started doing sculpture art with Parvaneh Roodgar in 2007 after I lost my beloved mother, my adored sweet flower. In the pursuit of my happiness and being in the need of lightheartedness, I began to work with clay. Sometimes I spend more than ten hours with no pause, no hesitation. Parvaneh, my very dearest instructor has been a great influence in my life. She showed me how the strength in works, and true perspective in the world can be life changing. I slowly started to explore the relation of the human body and beyond that I devoted my heart and my mind to investigate the beauty of human anatomy. I became more familiar with the capacity of the human gifted life with a grateful heart.
