My name is Haleh Saadat. I was born and raised close to the striking mountains of Alborz in Tehran, Iran on a cold November day in 1961. I spent 23 years of my life in Iran, studied medicine, and was forced to leave after the Islamic Revolution.
My long journey took me to Turin, Italy, then Vancouver, Canada, and finally to New York. I studied Obstetrics and Gynecology in Turin, participated in multiple research projects in Vancouver, beautiful British Columbia, and finally studied Anesthesiology and specialized in Pediatric Anesthesia at Yale University in New Haven, CT. I have been living in Woodbridge with my husband, Abbas, and three beautiful daughters (Anushka, Ariana & Nikki) since 1999, and have a privilege to practice Anesthesiology.
During all these movements and throughout my busy clinical practice, I was fortunate to know very many seemingly ordinary individuals with fascinating stories, cultures, and backgrounds. Each and every one of them helped me in their own way to know the world and myself a bit better, one step at the time.
I started painting shortly after moving to CT in 2000. I do not have any formal training in painting, but am fascinated with colors. I paint when I am thinking about a heartfelt event, listening to a podcast or an audiobook. This collection is my feeling of the moment managed to linger on the canvas. I am truly honored to be included as a part of this exhibition at Woodbridge Library.
