About the Artist:
Golie Miamee is an American born, Iranian-American artist. For Golie, art has always been a passion and her primary form of expression. Born in Michigan, her travel adventure started when she was just one month old with a trip to Iran where she spent the first 10 years of her life and where she discovered her interest in art at the age of 8. Golie is now a world traveler who loves to photograph and capture her journeys. With a background in Computer Science, Graphic Design and Visual Arts, Golie switched her focus to photography ten years ago.
Golie considers herself a visual artist, rather than a traditional photographer, who uses a photograph as her canvas and digital editing as the main medium. She strives to let her audience see the world as she sees it through her lens where every photo becomes a timeless capture of that specific scene. Intrigued by the world, her love for photography, and passion for travel, have together allowed her to capture memorable moments of nature, people, places, art, culture and much more. Golie sees every photograph as an image that can come to life; and hopes that each one gives her viewers the same bliss and enjoyment as it does for her. She ventures to expand her work by adding more destinations from around the world while developing new media techniques.
