Nastaran Mazloumi is an illustrator who is fascinated with colours and searching for visual meanings and symbols as means of expressions. She tends to apply mixed media to create imaginative, thought provoking pieces by using strong and bold colours.

Her first experiences as an artist was at the age of 7. She was fascinated by the illustrated fairytales of Hans Christian Anderson such as”The Emperor’s New Clothes”, “The Little Mermaid”, “The Little Match Girl”, “The Red Shoes”, “The Princess and the Pea” and “The Snow Queen”. She was spending the whole summer holiday on drawing her fairytale characters and sometimes creating her owns. From then on she got hooked!


Nastaran enjoys reading and spends her spare time reading books from her favourite writers such as Alain De Botton, Hermann Hesse, Irvin Yalom and, Jean-Jacques Rousseau.


Nastaran went on to studying through practical experience, self learning as well as studying visual arts at the Technical And Future Education (TAFE) in Australia. It was then that she really began to hone her skills and knowledge in illustration and creative design, where she could beautifully bring her ideas to life. Nastaran’s main focus is on women, migration, whimsical things and her deep emotions.
