Profile for Maryam Shariati

Hello! I'm a freelance illustrator based in Portland, OR, and soon to be alum of PNCA. Besides painting, a perfect day for me would include: reading fiction with a cup of tea, a purring cat, and a view of a garden, whether it’s bathed in sun or a lightning storm.

My gouache paintings feature vivid color, fey-like figures, flora, and fauna that play in lands beyond the veil. I'm inspired by fantasy, science fiction, and the mysteries of both feline and human nature.
