Born in Tehran, Iran, Behnaz Karjoo moved to the United States at a young age where she developed an early interest in art. Her creative pursuits took a serious turn later in her life, which has led to her current study of jewelry design and photography at Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT). Her passion lies with Islamic art, inspired by her early memories of Iranian mosque architecture, illumination paintings, and calligraphy. Intrigued by the symmetry and patterns, she has studied sacred geometry and uses its motifs and principles in her paintings, digital art, jewelry designs, and even photography. In 2011, she began studying Islamic illumination under Mujgan Baskoylu. Under Mujgan’s guidance and instruction, Behnaz has developed her skills to levels she never before dreamed of.
