Greetings beautiful people and welcome to my world!
I was born in Iran and immigrated to Australia as a young child in 1984 to flee the Iran / Iraq war (1980-1989). As a first generation Iranian-Australian I am deeply passionate about empowering women through creative expression. My life has taken me on a wild and wonderful ride as artist, writer, curator, educator, healer, workshop facilitator, mother and postnatal doula.
Art is a major aspect of my life. My formal training is in Art History and Theory, however, I am always experimenting with materials and techniques. My work has cultural connections to my homeland, my lineage and my experience of growing up in Australia. Through my artmaking I channel powerful teachings of the divine feminine and subsequently allow space for personal healing and empowerment.
As an educator I have worked in a wide variety of settings and age groups. I facilitate workshops, women’s circles, classroom teaching and public events. I love working with both young people and adults alike, creating exciting containers for engagement, exploration and expression.
For over 10 years I studied Sufism in Sydney and that opened the door to the secrets of my heart. I am currently being initiated into the Andean Energy Healing modality through a Shamanic Medicine and Ceremony Apprenticeship. I feel immense joy to be on this path of service. Being a medicine woman means to be walking in integrity, humility and kindness as I live and breath the beauty way, activating healing for myself, my community and the Earth.
I am a proud mother of three amazing children. With each pregnancy and birth I have expanded into deeper layers of the rite of passage into motherhood. My experiences have inspired me to offer healing and ritual ceremonies for new mothers and families to navigate the post-partum period.
what I offer
My projects are predominantly concerned with the empowerment of women. I offer a safe space for women to come together in sisterhood, in trust and love to ignite their creative center and explore their own gifts; re-writing their stories and manifesting their true essence through creative expression. I facilitate women’s gatherings, art workshops, family medicine drum circles, drum making workshops, art exhibitions and postnatal healing through ritual and ceremony.
