Afsaneh Ahmadian

My name is Afsaneh and I’m originally from Tehran. I came to Australia by boat. There were so many reasons why I left Iran.

When I was young I often painted, but I put creative work aside when I went to study. It was only after I arrived in Australia that it became a focus for me again.

I have always wanted to do this, but I was too busy before. I am happy to be painting now.
