Shirin Moosavi was born in Iran into an artistic family where painting, poetry and writing were a major part of life. Inspired by her uncle, she started oil painting in her early teenage years. At the age of 17, she produced her first illustrations for two children books in addition to illustrating stories in a children magazine.
She immigrated to the United States in her youth and earned her Bachelors of Science to satisfy her interest in that field.
She also completed a Master's degree in Fine Art at Laguna College of Art&Design. She has been illustrating children books, commissioning for private collections and exhibiting her painting.
