I'm Parisa and I wear a lot of hats,
literally and figuratively. 

I'm a multifaceted creator:
painter, web designer, engineer, educator and community builder, with a mission to help artists thrive in this new online selling space.
I've been keepin' it real since 1990.

Hey there!

ONCE UPON A TIME 

I was a corporate engineer, working on self-driving cars for one of the biggest car brands on the planet. It felt like a dream.
Until it... wasn't. 

 After a few years, I was tired of the politics, the two-weeks a year vacations and how I was welcome to use my creativity only within the tiny box of what I was asked. 
I started multiple ventures inside the company as a way to feed the creative-entrepreneur living inside. I even spent 6 months in the business side of the company as a business analyst, hoping that would be the answer… the struggle was real. 

oh stary eyes...

In 2019 I took a leap of faith...

I finally built up the courage to admit that this urge could not be met by working for someone else. I quit, traveled for months and started my own creative business. Now I run my own art business, an online art gallery and a web design agency where I help artists navigate the online art selling space - all while traveling and maintaining a location independent lifestyle. 

it all started from Paris

The scary leaps are often the ones we need to take the most. 

Currently...

I'm probably, cozied up in an airbnb or café in some foreign country, building websites, and dreaming up new ways I can help other creatives build a thriving online business that allows them to live the lifestyle of their dreams.

After quitting my job with no idea what would come next, I realized that life was about making opportunities out of situations instead of waiting for them—or someone else's permission—to happen. Today, this philosophy fuels me as one creative burst follows another: juggling web design projects while maintaining my own art practice and promoting emerging artists through my online art gallery, artterra, all while maintaining a location-independent lifestyle to travel. 

I'm not big on labels but here are some I like:

Engineer

01

I have a masters in systems design engineering.... think robots, cars, and other complex systems. 

02

Artist

It took a loooong time to accept this one, but boy-o-boy it feels good.

Full-stack Developer

03

I think of this one as where my engineering and artistic sides merge. 

04

Entrepreneur

One of the most challenging and equally rewarding things I’ve ever done. After so many years of searching I finally feel I’m on the path I belong. 

05

I've intentionally designed all my businesses to stay fully remote and I'm a firm believer of designing your business around the lifestyle of your dreams.

My PHILOSophY in life

I believe in living life with the courage to be my truest self, where I can live from one creative burst followed by another, while inspiring and empowering others to do the same.
