Soheila Haghighat was born in Isfahan, Iran. She studied traditional arts at Pardis Faculty of Arts in Isfahan and Al-Zahra University in Tehran and graduated in 1989. She worked and researched in different branches of Iranian traditional arts such as embossing, pottery, glass blowing, illumination, textile arts, natural dyes and carpet designing. 

She also pursued her interests in photography. She wrote her thesis on the subject of Arts of Armenian Iranians.
Since 1992, Soheila Haghighat has devoted her time to painting and teaching. She first used watercolors and painted people and scenery. Later on she used acrylic for her abstract figurative paintings, mainly showing the feelings and sensibilities of Iranian women. Her last individual exhibition in 2005 had the theme of the place of women in Iranian society.

Soheila Haghighat’s paintings have been shown in seven individual and twenty three group exhibitions in Iran and three group exhibitions abroad, two in New York and Houston ( Echoes in Blue) and one on the occasion of World Women’s Day in Istanbul, Turkey.
