Paintings based on Persian miniature, Persian carpet designs, and Coffee House painting tradition and Western painting style.

An artist with multicultural background can’t help of not to hybrid consciously or unconsciously to hybrid his/her paintings. I remember a visitor to my first painting exhibition, containing mostly abstract and Australian landscapes, told me: “Back to your essence, back to your own culture”, told me a visitor to one of my earlier shows. She wanted to tell me that I had a wealth of cultural heritage that I could use in my artwork. It took a while until it kicked in. In one sense, all my paintings are autobiographical and cross-cultural. However for the sake of classification, I have gathered these paintings under Cross-cultural.

Some has references to Iranian and Australian visual cultures, and some are only based on the Iranian miniature or rugs designs.
