“I love all sorts of art, from calligraphy to acrylic, but my true passion is watercolor. When I mix color with water and put my brush on the paper, I find ultimate peace and comfort,” said Kian. When she realized her passion, Kian started learning from the best Iranian watercolor painters at the time, such as Naser Nourmohammad Zadeh, Mohammad Ali Yazdchi, and Homa Ghaffar Zadeh. At 30, she started teaching her own students and since then taught hundreds of students in all ranges, from 3-years old to 85-years young. See: http://fatemehyaskian.com/.

After moving to Los Angeles in 2017, she became an active member of Valley Watercolor Society; and has had a number of exhibitions and live teaching demonstrations.
