Samareh Azadi

Samareh Azadi was born and grew up in Iran and this has been a source of inspiration throughout her work. She is inspired by the geometrical shapes, textures, and patterns in Iranian art. As a Baha’i woman in Iran, Samareh experienced discrimination which has formed her feelings and fields of interest in creating picture books. Samareh has recently completed a Masters in Children’s Book Illustration at Cambridge School of Art.
