Rashin was born in Khorramshahr, Iran, in 1979. Since she was a little girl, her great passion was to become an artist. The beauty of Persian rugs and her interest in astrology inspired her to write and illustrate Bahar, the Lucky and her love of food inspired her use of mixed media in Love on a Plate, a fun, lift-a-flap book that will bring fun to every family meal.
