Farida Zaman has a passion for art and design. In her 20 years as a freelance illustrator, she has worked in many countries across the world, bringing style, colour, and joy to many. Trained in fine art and illustration and now a seasoned freelance professional, Farida displays a wide versatility of applications of her style: her art has been used in posters, book covers, children's book illustrations, clothing, packaging, and giftware. The look is unmistakable: lively, colourful, whimsical, executed with flair and drama — designs that always enhance and enliven. Farida built an international career as a freelance illustrator in Geneva, London, New York, and Toronto. Her work has been exhibited at private shows and public galleries in New York City, New Jersey, and Toronto. She is a member of the Society of Illustrators in New York, SCBWI (Society for Children's Bookwriters and Illustrators), and CAPIC (Canadian Association of Photographers and Illustrators in Communication).
Farida Zaman is a very versatile artist. She works in gouache, watercolours, black and line ink, acrylics and uses Photoshop as required. Often she mixes mediums with each other to get the results that she looks for as per project. She works on a daily basis and produces at least one artwork, either in her sketchbook or as a finished piece. She is truly inspired by her travels around the world and her personal surrounding and bits and pieces she collects.
