Maryam Rouhi

My art is a reflection of my life, a reflection of myself… I am a Laguna Beach-based artist with a bachelor degree in graphics design. I started my career in commercial art working as a graphic designer for over 10 years. From the very beginning, I knew that drawing and painting were my lifelong passion. My continuous love for the female figure and portraiture has led to numerous drawings and paintings from live models. I work mainly in oils and capture the inner essence of the sitter. I am inspired by the graceful elegance of the female form and my love for color is unique to my senses. My brush strokes and textures create an unforgettable experience for the viewer. Each brushstroke builds up a story, a life, and a passion. I also enjoy creating sculptures from live models. I received an award for excellence in Oils/Acrylics from the Dean of Saddleback College. I am proud to show my art each summer at Art-A-Fair in Laguna Beach.
