How does one become an artist?
Some people are born knowing the artist within. From an early age, they follow the clear truth that guides them to express their art. I have not been one of them. For me art has never been a focus but a joyful escape from my left brain… a theme of creativity, linking the pieces of my life together. Knitting and needle work in the early years when I was growing up in Iran… crafts in my twenties as I became an engineer… photography, in my thirties as I worked in corporations… writing, in my early forties as I ran my consulting business, all have woven golden threads of creativity in the tapestry of my life. They have brought me to this time of expressing myself in paintings... a time where my art is becoming both my profession and my way of being in the world.

How does one become an artist?
Some people are born knowing the artist within. From an early age, they follow the clear truth that guides them to express their art. I have not been one of them. For me art has never been a focus but a joyful escape from my left brain… a theme of creativity, linking the pieces of my life together. Knitting and needle work in the early years when I was growing up in Iran… crafts in my twenties as I became an engineer… photography, in my thirties as I worked in corporations… writing, in my early forties as I ran my consulting business, all have woven golden threads of creativity in the tapestry of my life. They have brought me to this time of expressing myself in paintings... a time where my art is becoming both my profession and my way of being in the world.

At this stage of my life, art is what excites me and connects me to my Source of creative energy. When I create, time becomes totally meaningless. My hands, my heart, my intuition and my spirit, all line up to open a doorway for creativity to flow through me.

When I begin to create a new piece of art, I enter a different world. As if I have been holding my breath, I breathe deeply from the energy of Creation. I align with my deeper Knowing, then, I dress up in peacock feathers, and… I dance with the wind… I play with the sun-rays… I blossom with the flowers… I sparkle with the stars… I fly with the angels…

In this world…
I am alive and brimming with life. I am excited about all the possibilities that are hiding in the illusion of “time”, waiting to unfold through me. The process of creation energizes me and that energy transforms itself into my artwork.
