Vida Karamooz

Acrylic on Canvas

May-June 2016

Vida Karamooz artist portrait

Coming from my imagination, my paintings fall under abstract impressionist style category. Then again, they are alive as they carry part of my soul.  Painting is my silent sanctuary, a place of om, where I get lost in myself and connect to my inner being; a safe place far away from the past and the future.  Therefore, creating art has always been part of my life journey.

My paintings have evolved over time and are still constantly changing depending on where I am physically, mentally, spiritually, and emotionally.   I allow them to take form without resistance or judgment.  They are what they are.

Born in Tehran, Iran, I obtained my Film and Television BA at Kent University in England, and continued with my Masters in Communications and PhD in  Organizational Development at Penn State.  My professional career includes working for Pfizer and Accenture.  In 2010, my husband and I relocated to Oakland from the east coast and started a botanical skin care product company called Blue Beautifly.

I am blessed with 2 adult children who have also moved to California.
