My name is Shirin, K, Yamolky I am a self taught artist based in the foothills of Alberta. I am originally from North of Iraq. My family and I fled our home in 1993 due to Saddam Hussein using chemical bombs against the Kurdish people. My love of art began when I was about five years old. I started out sketching cartoon caricatures and mountains.
As a teenager, I came from Kurdistan to Canada in 1995 with my family fleeing the threat of chemical attacks from Saddam Hussein. After a couple of years of living in Vancouver with my family I left for Calgary in 1999 with $20 in my pocket.
I paint using a variety of mediums, my favorite being oil, I enjoy painting the Canadian landscape and wildlife.
I have my artwork featured in local art galleries and appeared in a local newspaper.
I am available for commissioned artwork, please contact me for details.
