Years ago, I gave up the Graphics and decided to work hard and do my best to become a professional illustrator due to my passion for illustration.

even though it seemed impossible at that time because of the lack of accessibility of the internet and the illustration major was not provided as a distinct course in the schools and universities of my city.

I started working in a completely empirical manner, with trial and error, and with the help of several teachers who played a significant role in my progress and achievement. With God’s help.

I illustrated my first book in 2008, and my career path was formed towards the goals that I dreamed about for many years. After achieving the bachelor’s degree in illustration major, I tried to integrate the empirical experiences with my academic knowledge, and at the same time I participated in several national and international individual and group exhibitions; and I tried so hard to gain new experiences in this field.

Different orders in the fields of applied illustration, games and animation have opened new horizons for me, and today with illustrations for more than 3000 frames; I am still working for more progress and development, and I do my best to create a more beautiful world through the images I create for children.
