Pleasant Hill, CA
If Maliheh Salari wasn’t physically drawing something as a child she was drawing in her head. This childhood urge to take pen to paper never left Maliheh, following her through adulthood, where she now works as a professional graphic designer. The Iranian-born artist draws inspiration from the ordinary, feeling that even the most boring moments can be inspiring if we look at them from a different perspective. Coming from a country with such old traditions and diversity, Maliheh draws from her Iranian heritage of creative arts and crafts. However, it wasn’t until Maliheh moved to Pleasant Hill, California that she felt like she had a new window of opportunity in which to showcase her artwork and share with the world.
