Hello (Salaam)! Welcome to my Website. My name is Maryam; I offer courses in Iranian/Persian Calligraphy (both Nastaligh and Shekaste-Nastaligh handwritings) and Persian illumination (Tazhib) in Zürich, Switzerland and Online.
My Background in Calligraphy & Illumination
I followed a formal education in the Iranian Calligraphy and the Iranian/Persian painting and illumination in the official association of calligraphers in Iran. After several years of training and successfully passing the different levels of the mastery, I have been graduated at excellent level «Momtaz» in two calligraphic handwriting styles of «Nastaligh» and «Shekaste-Nastaligh» in 2006 which is evaluated as a degree of Bachelor of Arts. Simultaneously I have learned Iranian/Persian painting and illumination («Naghashie Gol & Morgh» and «Tazhib») which are in well connection with the calligraphy.
My art works have been shown in different art events in Iran and I am a national award winner for my art work in using calligraphy in the graphic design. Also during my academic education, I have taught calligraphy and illumination in the Art association of my university in Iran.
Currently I am a member of the Swiss Calligraphic Association and offer courses in Zürich city and Online.
