The Artist
Haleh Moddasser's love of art and fascination with the human form dates back to her early experiences as a child, traveling extensively throughout Europe and the Middle East. During these years, Haleh came to understand at a deep level that people of different cultures are profoundly similar at their core, despite their varying customs and geographic origins. It is Haleh's fascination with this collective human consciousness that informs her paintings.

Having studied at the Florence Academy of Art, the School of Visual Arts in New York and with contemporary artists Dan Gerhartz and Robert Liberace, her major artistic influences include Joaquín Sorrolla, Antonio Mancini and John Singer Sargent.

Haleh paints exclusively in oils. Her painterly technique and her use of color culminate in fine art pieces evoking energy and movement. Haleh was born in Blackburn, England of Iranian parents. She was raised in North Carolina where she continues to live and work as a painter and fine art instructor.
