Ghazal Shoaei was born and raised in Iran and came to the US in 2001, learning English as her second language. Although she was born with cerebral palsy it has not stopped her from evolving into one of Short Center North’s most inventive artists. Ghazal is a hard worker and a very determined artist, confident in her skills but eager to learn new techniques. Her delicate fantasy landscapes are balanced and employ a linear style that evokes her heritage. Coming to DDSO’s Short Center North program has opened her world to the arts experience, giving her the opportunity to discover herself creatively, build self-esteem, and publicly exhibit and sell her work.
You can support this and other Short Center North activities by choosing DDSO for your Day of Giving contribution!
