Why did you choose to open a gallery in Marbella?
I have met my husband Tarek inMarbella and we started a family here. 8 months ago I gave birth to our first child and I thought Marbella is the best place to raise a family. Plus I think Marbella is changing and has a lot of potential to become an art destination.

How did you enter into the world of art?
I always loved ART! I have started to learn painting when I was 7 years old. I had tried different methods and different mediums with some of the famous artists in Iran. I bought my first painting when I was 18 years old. I always had a good relationship with the artists and I kept buying for myself and others as well. Later on I studied Art History in Hotel Drouot in Paris and I studied Art and Business, Gallery curating in Sotheby’s Institute of Art in London.
