Laurie Blum, an American painter and gardener, visited Iran three times from 2003-2005. She was the first person allowed to paint on the grounds of the Garden of Paradise, Hafez’s Tomb, and Sa’adi’s Tomb after the guards fell in love with her work. She has met dignitaries from Iran and has been invited to exhibit at The United Nations, The National Arts Club, and Hafez’ tomb. Her love for Persian Miniatures, Hafez and the Persian language began when she was young and continues today.

    Thank you, Ivan, for a taste of The Garden with Laurie Blum’s paintings and story, and for your advice to ‘beat the air with our wings’ via Walt Whitman today. Just perfect for this hot summer…
