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). I have a Bachelor of Arts (Art History & Theory and Performance Studies) and a Masters of Teaching from the University of Sydney.
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 has always been part of my life, for as long as I can remember I had a pencil in my hand! My formal training is in Art History and Theory, however, I am always experimenting with materials and techniques. Within my visual arts practice I have explored various media such as painting, drawing, collage and mixed media. Recently I have experimented with immersive installation and film. My practice draws heavily on my cultural connections to my homeland, my lineage and my experience of growing up in Australia. Currently, my work has taken on a more intuitive approach. A direction that has opened a channel in me to receive powerful teachings of the divine feminine and subsequently allowed space for personal healing and empowerment.
I come from a long line of storytellers, if I travel back in time far enough I am sure there is Gypsy blood in me! I am named after my Great Grandmother who was a renowned storyteller and medicine woman. Although I only have very fragmented memories, I feel very much bonded to her and the gifts she carried. I have worked as a freelance writer and I am currently drafting a few book ideas about my spiritual awakening, a children’s picture book and other musings!
I consider myself a seeker of creative endeavours that draw out the depths of human experience and the magic of our collective connection with nature. For over 10 years I studied Sufism in Sydney and that opened the door to the secrets of my heart. I am currently investigating earth centred practices through Shamanic healing journeys as I am called to shift my direction into new areas of expression and healing; particularly postnatal healing through ritual and ceremony.
I went to Peru in 2017 and it literally changed my life. As soon as I stepped foot on the land I could feel the ancestral call to step into my purpose and walk the path of the ‘sage’- the wisdom keeper- I received so many visions and heart opening experiences, some of which I am still integrating 2 years later! My biggest reminder was that I had to let go of all my conditioning and surrender to the flow of life. Being a slightly OCD control freak at the time this seemed impossible. But as soon as I did I was shown the power of the divine feminine to restore the balance. Through my art making, writing and workshops I share these transmissions of wisdom and healing power of unconditional love.
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 Goddess circles / women’s gatherings / art workshops / drum making / exhibitions / rites of passage ceremonies, postnatal healing and so much more.
