My name is Shaghayegh Moazzami. I am a Fine Art Painting graduate from Art University of Tehran. I started my career as a painter but because of my interest in storytelling, I was drawn to illustration. I left Iran in 2016 and moved to Montreal. Since 2017, I have been working as an Editorial Cartoonist for two online magazines in Canada.


* My name, "Shaghayegh," is the name of the flower called "Poppy Anemone" in English.
