< Back to the Art in Residence

An Iranian born artist now living in Miami, Florida, Raheleh attended the Faculty of Arts at the University of Tehran, and afterward studied under the mentorship of prominent Iranian painter Daruish Hosseini. She later began sculpting under the tutelage of eminent sculptor Behrooz Daresh. She has had several group and solo exhibits in both Tehran, Iran, and in the United States, and she and her work have been featured on Iran's national television station, Channel 4.

Raheleh's work concentrates on abstractions of the human form and the emotional expressivity emanating from it, something not found elsewhere in nature. Each piece shows an alternate view of the subject, displaying a distinct beauty otherwise unseen. One cannot pass Raheleh's pieces without stopping, and getting washed over by its startlingly unique perspective. Outside of art, Raheleh is a professional squash player, was on the National Iran Team for seven years, ranked #3 in her country, and achieved her highest world ranking of 187.
