Today we’d like to introduce you to Najmeh Hoseini.
Najmeh, we appreciate you taking the time to share your story with us today. Where does your story begin?
I am an immigrant from Iran who moved to the US with a student visa and full scholarship for a PhD program in kinesiology with a minor in neuroscience in 2019. I am also a physical therapist and after graduation, I’ve spent six years in Academia teaching physical therapy and brain science to doctoral students. However, my passion and love is art and I spend every spare minute creating paintings. The ideas come and find me and I feel obligated to create them. I’ve recently had an art show in Phoenix in which I collaborated with the Moment of Truth Physical Therapy Center for women health and donated about $1400 of my sale to the Phoenix Dream Center for fighting sex trafficking. My next year’s plan is to create a body of new artwork representing the “Unseen Women of Iran” to raise awareness about the women oppression in the Middle East.
Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way. Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
I have a full-time job that requires a lot of mental capacity. Meanwhile, painting is a remedy for me and I think it is my calling to create as much beauty in the world as possible. To achieve what my soul craves, I need some discipline. I wake up very early and do yoga and meditate. I barely ever watch TV. I stay connected with people who are positive and encouraging and invest in art material and classes.
Life is a journey for growth and contribution… I’m planning to make the best out of it.
As you know, we’re big fans of you and your work. For our readers who might not be as familiar what can you tell them about what you do?
I’m an artist and also someone who has a lot of knowledge about human brain. I think my mission in life is to find a good balance between the right and the left brain, the creative and the thinker. I want people to connect to my art and let their emotions flow and give them a moment of presence. Present moment is the most precious and available yet most ignored moment.
I love traveling and learning from different cultures and people around the world.
My big vision is to be a full-time artist, travel the world, and contribute to the other humans by creating art and educating how to let their inner child to take control and enjoy the moment.
What matters most to you?
Love matters most to me. Love yourself, love what you do, love everyone knowing we’re all connected and coming from the same source, love the planet and animals, and love the lessons that life provides for us so generously. Love creates possibilities, it makes you think positive, it brings people closer to one another, it heals your body and mind, it expands your mind. Love is the essence of creativity and growth.
