Moshgan’s journey to becoming a professional artist first found expression during the aftermath of Iran’s cultural-revolution in 1979 when the government closed public universities. After a year of turmoil and chaos, Moshgan enrolled in Kamalolmolk School of Fine Arts, a private school that remained open.  It was here, and over the next four years that her soul-life and creative expression were nurtured.  She began studying with a gifted teacher, Saeed Broomand who had just recently returned from Europe after twenty years abroad.  Mr. Broomand openly shared his knowledge of western art forms with his students and encouraged them to be free in their artistic expression. This freedom of expression is one of the driving forces behind Moshgan’s powerful work and is the thread that connects her early Expressionist work to her contemporary Plein Air Abstract work of the present. 


After graduation from Kamalolmolk, Moshgan knew she needed to expand her horizons for her career to flourish.  It was springtime, 1986 when she left Iran and travelled to the United States via Istanbul and finally New York City where she lived, studied and exhibited. She enrolled in Hunter College and effortlessly earned two obligatory BA’s in Fine Art and Art History.


She has exhibited nationally and internationally. The International Art Expo was one of her first exhibitions in New York City.  Her work was exhibited on behalf of the United Nations in support of a show entitled, “Women and the Arts: Struggles and Triumphs.” She has always been a supporter of women artists.  The sale of several of her works helped to support The Libby Ross Breast Cancer Foundation (LRBCF); LEAP, a NYC based art education non-profit held a fund-raiser where Moshgan was the featured artist. Moshgan belongs to The National Association of Women Artists and is an active member in the New York City Chapter.      


Having built a thriving career that spans four decades and two continents, her collectors worldwide all delight in partaking of the Divine energy expressed in her colorful and deeply passionate works. Moshgan’s paintings continue to be sought after by admirers and fine art collectors from around the world.

The foundation of my artistic journey as a painter has been nurtured over thousands hours of exploration and study.  In the practice of my art, I am free to be a channel through which flows my expression of the love, beauty and joy I find the natural world. Throughout the course of my life, I have always felt guided by three principles: devotion, scholarship, and mastery. No obstacle had shaken my devotion to my art, and nature is its taproot.


A Plein Air Painter by both training and desire, I knew early on that the natural world held wondrous mysteries waiting to be explored. Form, strong colors and bold brush strokes became golden keys in my vision quest to express nature's hidden secrets. Somewhere along the journey, the boundaries of form began to feel limiting. Color became a more dominant force in my work, and I became free to express my artistic vision of nature's aliveness, motion, and energy in more abstracted and expansive ways with luminous colors.


Oil and Pastel have been my most reliable mediums. Their rich impasto allows me to create the intensity I want. Bold strokes on canvas or paper, whether by brush or oil stick, capture the liveliness and motion of nature itself. My fascination with the world of nature lead me another one: the world of color.  My evolution from Expressionism to Abstract Expressionism has introduced me to a new medium to my work; acrylic.  I felt inspired in new ways by the luminosity and transparency of this medium, which has created new possibilities and depth to my work. Acrylic has become the medium of choice for my Plein air work.  Just as I have found satisfaction in the flowing dance of reality and abstraction, so too have I found that combing oil and acrylic in the same piece, along with charcoal, gouache, and even nature's bounty on a windy day- bits of sand, cherry blossoms or leaves when applied on top of the paint, creates an energy and movement that I had otherwise not known.
