About The Artist

Farheen Ali

Farheen Ali is a Toronto-based illustrator and jewellery artist. A medical illustrator by profession, Farheen has always been intrigued by organic forms and colors that exist in nature. Her training in landscape watercolour and Japanese sumi-e painting has inspired her to pay careful attention to and capture natural shapes in her artwork. Six years ago, she started to experiment with wire wrapped jewelry and discovered that she could create organic shapes and forms not just on a flat surface but in 3D as well. She now works with a palette of unique beads and found objects to create wearable pieces of art.
