BiographySahar Mohebi was born in Tehran, Iran, in 1976. Immediately she displayed great talent in fine art at an early age, and started getting awards from school competition at the age of 12. After immigrating to United States as a young adult, she decided to continue her education at the Academy of Art University. She received a M.F.A. degree in painting from the Academy of Art University in 2013. Artists like John Singer Sargent, Michelangelo, and Sorolla inspired her greatly. She believes representing the human figure is the highest form of art, and her paintings reflect the sensual, more romantic side of the female nude. Although still continued with her art work, during this time she took workshops to enhance her skills with other painters. She is now settled in San Francisco, California.
