I’m Marjan from Tehran, Iran

I came to Australia 3 years ago by boat. I was in detention for 17 months after this I came to Melbourne’s community.

I left Iran because it was not safe for my husband. It was dangerous for him to stay in Iran so we came to Australia.

I have never painted when I was in Iran; I have just started painting when I was in the detention centre. I like painting a lot and very eager to learn.

I feel relaxed when I paint. It makes me feel very quiet and relaxes my mind.
