I am an Assyrian American. I always wanted to become an artist, specially since high school. At the age seventeen I left home for Europe. My first stop was Italy. Italian art opened my eyes to creativity. I came to realize what truly art is. Being in heart of Renaissance was a new creative era in my life. After two years in Italy, I moved to Netherlands, the home of great Rembrandt. After two and half years in Netherland I moved to USA. I love to paint and drew. I also love bounding with the cultures of the world. I studied Art and South Western cultures at University of New Mexico. After graduating with BA from UNM, I went to Academy of Art University in San Francisco to study realism art. After graduating with MFA from AAU, I moved back to Taos NM. I live and paint in Taos, the vast land of enchanting South Western cultures.
