Without art, design, and architecture there is no creativity. Without creativity there is no individuality, and without individuality there is no true human being.
We don't just rely on art, design, and architecture, we live it.

Mina developed a passion for painting at an early age. She began to paint in Iran at primary school and continued her education in arts in Switzerland, Italy, England, and the United States. She graduated from the College of Fashion and Clothing, London, in 1972 and then obtained an arts degree in Houston in 1983.

Prior to moving to the United States in 1979, Mina had a fashion boutique, Kija, in Tehran. During 1983-87, she worked as a graphics artist in the Exploration Department of Conoco Inc., a major oil company, in Houston. Mina then established her private business in designing and making custom jewelry, and opened an art gallery, Galerie Mina, for the display and sale of her paintings and jewelry.

Throughout her diverse career as an artist, Mina has been an avid and prolific painter. She works primarily with oil-on-canvas, but also uses other painting media such as water color, charcoal and pastel. Her favorite motif is the ethnic Persian painting, inspired by miniature and ghahveh khaneh (coffee house) styles of 16th and 19th century Iran.Her current art gallery, Green House Gallery, located at 9305 Hammerly Blvd., Houston, Texas 77024 is for the display of Mina’s paintings and jewelry (mainly silver) and those of other artists.
