“As an artist and photographer my creative inspiration is fueled by the people and places I meet.” ~ Enzie
“Trained in Classical Realism Enzie Shahmiri is a portrait artist who has created portraits for families and individuals since 1999. The artist draws inspiration for her paintings from years of travel and observation of people from around the world.
Best known for her commissioned portraits of people and pets, Enzie not only captures her subjects’ distinctive facial expressions, but their unique aura’s and their own current place in life. Her subjects are as rich and as culturally diverse as her depictions of them.” – Ms. Lisa Freedman Art Marketer
Her work reflects her passion for humanity and she is equally passionate about philanthropic endeavors and charitable causes, to which she donates much of her work to improve the lives of others.The artist’s paintings have been exhibited in many solo and group exhibits and are in private collections in the USA, Europe and the Middle East.
