Nasrin Allahyarkhani – June’s Artist-in-Residence

 Nasrin is an independent designer based in Georgina. Her inspiration comes from her multi-disciplinary design background and passion for beautiful handmade art. As a child, her mother was inspiring; always busy knitting, sewing, and quilting, letting Nasrin use the extra materials to make doll clothes and crafts. Interested in art, Nasrin attended the Tehran Academy of Art, Daneshsaray Honar, where she took her first lessons in drawing, dance, and music. She received her certificate in Interior Design from the University of Tehran in 2001. Since graduating, she has practiced in various creative media, from interior design & costume design to jewelry and craft-making.
