Statement

My practice is rooted in contemporary Printmaking and Photography in the broadest sense. I have over a number of years developed an interdisciplinary approach to my work, combining materials and mediums to suit the context or conceptual approach. I draw on the subtle qualities of light and form from my experience of a given place, to convey a narrative however hidden or obscure.

Biography

I am a British/Iranian artist, graduating in Fine Art Printmaking from Edinburgh and with an MA in European Art from Barcelona and Winchester. I have a Doctorate in Drawing and Photography specialising in historic photographic processes to examine precedence for drawing with light.

I was an active member of the SSA from 1996 -2002 and President of the SSA between 2000 -2002. I now live on the East Coast of England. I have worked on several national and international residencies, exhibitions and have completed numerous private and public realm commissions across the UK, integrating contemporary art into new city centre developments and heritage locations. As Lead Artist I have conceived of community engagement initiatives, commissioned artists and undertaken strategic consultations.
