Sholeh Jafari

I was born and raised in Tehran, Iran, and later settled in the UK.

My main influences come from many artist I have in my family whose work I admire, I appreciate the encouragement and guidance they have always given to help me develop a thoughtful approach to my varied art subjects.

I began to paint more seriously when I was twenty,  and went onto gain two Art Degrees, Painting from Tehran University of Iran, and Fine Art from The University of Bath.

Whilst I enjoy to paint with acrylics and watercolour, I have found painting with Oils has become a natural preference and suits my style of art.

In association with painting I am also keen in making sculptures working with clay, however, it is painting which gives me  great comfort and absorbs me to a colourful world of my own.
