Mahtab strives to fully explore her creativity, to experience the outer limits and push the boundaries of her artistic journey. As an artist who desires to excel in her craft, she used a variety of mediums to express herself and achieve the right texture and feel in her work. The canvas is her playground where she embraces the joy of the creative process, where she delights in happy accidents and other unplanned surprises. Her artwork represents a passion and excitement that she has cherished and nourished, and arises from the many memories of the experience of life itself. Mahtab Abdollahi graduated with a Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Fine Art (1998) and completed her Masters of Arts (MA) in Illustration from Fine Art University (2003). She studied Graphic Design at George Brown College and graduated with Honours in 2009. She has participated in numerous group and nine solo exhibitions, including the National Gallery of Canadian Drawings online. She is also a board member of NGA, the Newmarket Group of Artists. She teaches watercolour, drawing and painting to adults and children.
