Giti was born and raised in Iran in a Jewish family. In her early 30's determined to leave Iran, Giti and her husband and their son were able to leave on a perilous journey. She arrived in the US in 1989 as a refugee and quickly built a life for herself and her family. In her long journey as an emigrant with no western cultural background, she endured, and survived so many obstacles. Her passion for art, in her early 60's, she decided that life has given her an opportunity to follow her passion as an artist and to use her own multicultural experiences, as subject of her paintings. Giti studied painting at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, the Boston Architectural College.
