Originally Born in Baku, Azerbaijan, I grew up

in San Francisco, CA. I began painting at the age 

of twelve. My love for history, politics and art

led me to a career in Theater and Film Design.

Now, armed with a MFA in Stage and Film Design

from NYU's TISCH School of the Arts and over

thirteen years of experience as a professional

designer, I am motivated to return to my first love, painting.

My work often expresses an internal emotional or psychological state. All aspects of the composition serve to express this condition. My hope is to create a visual expression that is universal and can unite people through a shared experience.
