About Me

Fariha started her journey into the world of creativity and innovation by specializing in the field of graphic design in 2000. Her career vision was to give life to creative instincts bursting within her and bring it to life. She has worked with different institutions, companies, hotels and banks for the promotion of art, culture and artists by digitally reproducing different designs, paintings and fresco works. As a creative person, Fariha’s main focus is to create innovative designs that inspire her in a spiritual way. Her passion for art  has lead her to travel to different places, forts, museums for inspiration which she blends with her own paintings and to create altogether a new design. With the view of promoting and preserving the work of old masters and fresco works from old forts of Lahore, from the shrine of Guru Nanak, and Museums, she started by getting copyrights from these artists  to reproduce the work. She replicated these designs in the form of paintings, wall ceilings, calendars, greeting cards and customized souvenirs. She collaborated and served different organizations, corporations, hotels, cultural institutions, banks by taking digital orders for them and reprinting the original beautiful designs.

Fariha’s Design is a beautiful amalgamation of play between nature’s colors, motifs, and traditional sub continental art combined with contemporary new techniques and practices. Having refined her skills in textile design from Saint Martin’s school at London in 2015, Fariha took this idea further ahead and started producing her own designs. Fariha is a freelance surface pattern designer and artist. Fariha’s abstract paintings produce eye catching prints with high quality colors on different materials (eg. paper, canvas, ceramics, and textiles). In her collection we can find old and historic decorative motifs, fresco works and paintings which can be reproduced on canvas, paper, ceramics, and textiles vibrantly and originally giving the feel of the real art piece. Fariha combines hand drawing, digital printing techniques and decorative motifs into her art taking inspiration from her maiden sub-continent culture and her travels across European countries. Her hand drawn designs are often done in acrylics, inks, gouache, markers, pencils, and other materials. Her designs are mostly abstract i.e. she uses a visual language of shape, form, color and line to create a composition. Her work is used in interiors, fashion designing (specifically scarves and shirts) as well as home accessories. By blending different hand-printed and painting techniques, she creates magic.

“I have found Fatiha to have a special passion for arts, colours , combinations , paint strokes and what not. Even when she was very young she used to play with colours and used to find creative shapes and figures ans nature. She gets indulged and absorbed whenever doing some painting, have her music on and keep painting for several hours. She has no sleep in her eyes when it comes to her paintings absolutely lost in her work, which is always full of creativity. Most of her art work highlights love for nature , spirituality and some philosophical tinge also. She’s a born artist , I must say this . Wish all the best for her passion and profession.”
