Hi! I am Maryam!

A little bit about me
 My journey starts from a rural mountainous area in Iran. My mom was the first woman there who could go to high school and I was the first girl who could experience studying in the top art university of art. The thirst for learning later led me to graduate with a Master of Fine Arts degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Living in different cities, I have seen people with diverse backgrounds and learned a lot about their needs, dream, and characters. 
 
This opportunity, as well as my strong background in visual art, helps me in my profession to see issues from different perspectives. It is meaningful for me to serve people and have an impact on their life. So, I enjoy making designs that are simple, efficient, and well-thought.
 
Aside from this, I spend my free time going out with my camera to tell stories of people with who I feel connected. My work has been exhibited internationally and, in the USA’s, world-class galleries and museums (see my art here). I also, enjoy traveling and learning about new cultures and languages. Currently, I am using Duolingo to improve my French.
