I am an Iranian-Canadian woman. I was born in Tehran and immigrated to Canada after getting my bachlor's degree in Physics where 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. I then decided to pursue my other passion, Art, which brought me back to Iran. Finally, about a year ago, I started this type of art which I like to call Phaintography, a mixed combination of Photography and Painting.
