Saba Manesh is a watercolour artist, originally from Iran who trained in watercolours as part of her degree in Urban Design. "Watercolour is my passion, and each painting tells a story of places I've explored and tried to depict emotions I've felt and the connection I have with the world around me as an artist and landscape architecture. My art is a reflection of the seasons, the landscapes, and the beauty that exists everywhere either in a landscape or a bunch of flowers."
