Biography

Fereshte was born in the autumn of 1943, the first-born child of loving parents in uptown Tehran. A brother and three sisters quickly followed her, and those early years taking care of her sisters and carrying out daily chores were to shape her psyche and lead her to display the same traits at various points of her career.

In the early 60's, Fereshte was accepted to the Polytechnic of Oxford in order to study Art and Design. It is fair to say that as much as creating, Fereshte enjoys learning, and because of this, she took Oxford Polytechnic well within her stride. Her nearest relative during those days was her younger brother who was attending boarding school at Basingstoke.

After returning to Iran and getting married Fereshte exhibited her paintings at the Sun House Gallery in Tehran in 1973. The work consisted of mainly Oil on canvas of a surreal nature. She spent the next few years frequenting with painters and artists, (Soosan Abadi, Sepehri, Saffaian were close friends), and this gave her an understanding of colours and textures from the perspectives of some of the greatest Persian artisans

She returned to England in the 80ís and decided to setup her own jewellery design business. In the 1990's, she obtained a Masters with Honours in Silversmith and Jewellery design from Sir John Cass college.
She lives in London and has a studio in Putney, S.W London
