I am an Iranian-Canadian woman. I was born in Tehran and immigrated to Canada after getting my bachelor's degree in Physics. I continued my studies and got my PhD in Particle Physics from University of Toronto. For 5 years after graduation, I worked in the field in Canada, Switzerland and Germany; an experience I have enjoyed and cherish dearly.
Afterwards, I decided to pursue my other passion, Art, which brought me back to Iran. I considered a few different forms of Art, however, they did not attracted me enough to get serious about. In April 2017, on a trip to north of Iran, I made two painting-like images using my mobile phone. This is how I began this type of art which I like to call Phaintography, a mixed combination of Photography and Painting.
