The draw of mathematics and family expectations were the motivating forces that guided the direction of Gita Hazrati during the first three decades of her life. She completed a Masters Degree in Nuclear Reactor Science and Engineering at England's Imperial College of London University and a Bachelor of Science Degree in physics at the National University of Iran.
While adept in the sciences, Gita has always pursued her love of art as a doll maker, a watercolorist, oil painter, craftsman and model maker. Gita remarks, “I am following my passion. I use both sides of my brain”. She spent 12 years in London and traveled the European countries extensively.
Gita moved to the United States with her husband and two children in 1991. Relocating to provide better opportunities for their boys in America, they currently reside in beautiful Saratoga, California, just 1 hour south of San Francisco.
In the years since formal instruction, Gita has become an accomplished oil painter. Studying with notable artists in California, she paints in studio and outdoors---landscapes, figures, still lifes and portraits. Gita's works are found in collections in the United States and abroad.
For three consecutive years, Gita has received an honorable mention for “artistic Achievement” from the Los Gatos Art Association. “The Grand View Invitational Art Show” honored her with a “1st Place Award” and an “Honorable Mention” in their Outdoor Painting category.
