The Artist

I was born in Iran and came to England to continue my education in the city of Nottingham in 1971.

I studied at Trent Polytechnic for three years graduating with an Art Degree in Textile Design in 1974. I subsequently went on to complete a postgraduate year at Trent specialising in Embroidery.

After graduating I worked for a year as an embroidery designer in Nottingham, in the Lace Market. However, I felt that I needed to express my own ideas and I began to work freelance.

This has enabled me to devote myself to my work. My work is sold widely through exhibitions, galleries and commissions, in the form of original embroideries.

I create pictures in an artistic medium, which is a type of free machine embroidery.

Threadpainting is a way of painting with thread and I have applied this technique to create beautiful landscapes.

I began to experiment with machine embroidery during my postgraduate studies and was excited to discover that it was capable of producing work with the quality of oil paintings.

The embroidery is worked freehand straight onto the fabric and therefore each picture is unique.

I work from drawings, pictures or personal photographs and the application of the design is achieved by a style of free machine embroidery, which permits great versatility in textures and depth.

Embroidery allows one to take a flat image from paper and translate it with thread into a three dimensional one, which immediately becomes alive and exciting.

The picture below, with expanded detail, was featured in 2016 in the 'The Encyclopedia of Embroidery Techniques', ISBN: 978-1-78221-475-5
