Biography

Mina was born in Tehran, Iran, and emigrated to a small town in New Jersey called Dumont.  Not speaking English as a small child, the only way she could express herself was through her hands, drawing and writing what she wanted to relay.  She found herself communicating through the world of drawing and colors, mesmerizing fellow kindergarteners with her budding artistry.  And in fact, in her adult life, the painter's brush again became her form of expression when words could not express the depth of her emotions.

She was insecure through her adolescence and the only time she felt a sense of self acceptance and belonging was when she was painting.  She realized her talent and upon seeing her watercolor painting in a showcase, her passion was ignited.  While attending high school, she fell in love with different forms of art and would use them throughout her academics.

She traveled extensively, and gained an understanding of the ways, beauties, and richness of the world.  Afterwards, she continued her education at UCLA, where she obtained a Bachelor's Degree in Design.  Though she found those days at UCLA extremely challenging, she considers them the best in her experience.

After a long search for the purpose of her life, she found answers in Kabbalah, a mystical study that appeals to one's quest for life and all it has to offer to one's curious mind.  It was through these teachings that she discovered joy in her love and passion for oil painting.  The creative fulfillment from painting gives her a feeling of oneness with the universe.  She believes that through her art, she brings out the unlimited power of potential we all share.  She truly wishes that her images are able to awaken the spark of Light that we all possess.

She currently lives in Los Angeles.
