Welcome to  my online shop/ Studio/ Gallery!

So happy to meet you here!

This is reproduction of my original watercolor painting that I turned to a wearable art.

My wearable art reflects the story of my life.  Three chapters on three continents where I had many successes and challenges.  I see them all as blessings that helped me grow and be grateful for the gift of life!

Chapter One: Born in Tehran and raised with love.  I felt the rich culture.  I was fortunate to attend one of highest ranking University in Iran and at the same time I was attending a 2 years internship with a top Japanese firm. The last part was receiving a full scholarship from Goethe Institut/ German Embassy  for Germany.  I am grateful for my first success stories at a young age.  The challenges were that I had to learn how to deal with the polio I had contracted when I was a year-and-a-half old and how to let go of the loss of my young father whom I had lost in a car accident as I was only 16 years old.

Chapter Two: In my early 20’s, I moved to Germany to further my education. During my 21 years in Germany, I had an opportunity to get to know this amazing country and people, pursued my master’s degree in Computer Science, got married and became a mother of two wonderful boys. The toughest time was going through a divorce and realizing that I would have to take the rest of this journey by myself: No husband and no father for my children.

Chapter Three: I moved to San Francisco with my boys in my early 40's to pursue a better life for my family.  We learned how to thrive by holding each other’s hand taking one step at a time.  We eventually settled in a beautiful community in the San Francisco Bay Area.   Although I lost my IT career during the 2008 financial crisis, I did not lose my spirit,  I was able to pursuit a career in real estate with the supports of my family and friends and become a successful realtor.
 
While I am enjoying the success of my real estate business, I don’t forget my other passion, ART.  
 
I work as a duo with my mom in my ART passion.  She is the hero of my life and my real-life guardian angel.  We have come closer than ever.  It is truly a pleasure to share all this good energy with the world around us. 
 
My collections of wearable art reflect the spirituality, creativity and inspiration that I draw upon throughout my journey in life. As you see every collection has a name and the idea behind it is another part of my personal journey: A big tool was to learn to  listen to my inner voice and find out what I need today the most: Some days I needed more courage and some days more patient or enjoyment? What do you need today?  Hope you can find it in our collection here.

I am confident that my creations can add another creative layer to your outfit or be that unique gift idea that you can share and with your beloved ones!
