"Capturing the raw facial expression of a person's innermost emotions in eruption has been the focus of my paintings," says Iranian-born artist Marjeneh Afkhami. "From love to hate, bliss to rage, might to fear, hope to despair, there is an extremity to each spectrum of emotions—a heated extremity when our inner thoughts melt into pure feelings that then takeover our bodies in an attempt to materialize into this world. In no part of the body is that phenomenon more apparent than on our faces."

In addition to being a thoughtful and sensitive painter, Marjeneh is a successful landscape architect whose private gardens, public parks, and commercial spaces can be seen all over the world.
