I, Negin Hosseini was born in Iran in 1978. Since my childhood I have had a great interest in painting. I started painting Persian miniatures when I was 12 years old. At the age of 14 I painted my first picture with oil and paint on canvas. In 1993, during my school days, I won the first prize for my portrait painting among the best young artists in Tehran. After that I started pursuing painting as a professional education. In 1996, at the age of 16, I began studying professional painting with Mr. Morteza Katouzian. I painted with this best real and surreal painter of Iran for 18 years. My works were painted with oil and paint on canvas, colored pencil and pastel.
