Farah constantly explores various disciplines to broaden her own artistic pursuits, integrating her fine arts background with design ideas and illustration. Her current areas of interest are drawing and painting on face masks, which is part of her endeavor to help stop the spread of Covid19 and drawing on fabric such as T-shirts or jackets. Farah’s designs lend a strong connection to her earliest influence by the Golden Age Hollywood artists such as Audrey Hepburn and Lucy Lucille Ball.
