  • I, Mahsa Mehdizadeh, was born in Tehran, Iran in 1987. I obtained my qualification (BS in pure chemistry) from Azad University, North Tehran branch. My graduation was in 2010.

 

  • When I was 15, I got interested in painting and started to learn watercolor painting. Owing to my passion towards painting and drawing, alongside with my academic study, I decided to attend courses of building drawing and Computer-Aided Drafting (CAD) in Technical and Vocational Training Organization of Iran in 2007. I acquired my certificates in those courses after 1600 hours of training and passing the exams.

 

  • I commenced my professional life by working as a part time sales expert in Behsarma Company in 2005. After five years of commitment and hard work, in 2010, I got promoted to marketing and sales manager and I have been doing my best in that position since then. I also have the record of being a member of board in Behsarma for two years (2014 to 2016) and working as the CEO of SarmaFan-e-Yazd from 2016 to 2018.

 

  • In 2005, I started teaching watercolor to beginners and participating in local and international art events and exhibitions. Thanks to several years of professional watercolor painting, finally, I was honored to be admitted as an associate member of International Watercolor Association-Iran branch in 2018. My achievements as an watercolor artist include holding three solitary watercolor exhibitions, several certificates for participation and artwork contribution to local and international art festivals such as Urbino in Acquerello 2019 (Urbino, Italy), 2nd Iranian watercolor festival (Tehran, Iran) and International Youth Watercolor Festival (Plovdiv, Bulgaria) and also publication of a painting in the Annual book of selected artworks by Iranian watercolor painters 2018 (Shahr-e-Hashtom book).

 

  • My hobbies and interests are painting, playing piano, reading poems and personal improvement books, playing volleyball, swimming, animals, traveling and nature exploration.
