Azar Vaghefi is a very passionate artist who depicts nature, color and light in her artwork.
She is very inspired by the effect of sunlight when water runs on top of colorful stones, and she thrives to achieve the same magical feel through paint on canvas. She is also an expert on abstract expressionistic collage work. Her recent work incorporates a number of different materials on canvas. Layers of transparent paint over pieces of paper and fabric, creates a harmony with these objects and the canvas, uniting them in one highly expressive work of art.

Some of the galleries she works with include the Art People Gallery in San Francisco, Aspect Gallery and she was elected as the President of San Francisco Women Artists' organization in April 2010.
