Hello, I’m Parinaz and I am a UX Designer based out of Minneapolis. I am a creative and have been musical since early childhood which has carried into an array of creative pursuits in adulthood ranging from music, writing and illustrating. My background is diverse, including work in politics as well as a masters degree in Linguistics. My experience with digital illustration is very new--starting only a couple months ago. I began digital illustration as a way to unwind after a long day of work and began sharing my work on my social media. Without any formal education in the arts, I have been utilizing various information platforms to learn digital illustration and continue learning with every passing day.
