Samiah Faridi is a London based artist and textile designer with a specialty in creating abstract works of art, inspired by various forms of nature. Her collections reflect a fusion of techniques, including the use of textures, fabrics, and embroideries acquired through her background in fine arts, textiles and interior design. Samiah’s collections “Currents” and “Splashes of Light” were created from images inspired by elements of the sea. One can see her works exhibiting an appreciation of marine life through the wild movements of her brush strokes and textures. The colours she uses are habitually bright and deep, reminiscent of the rich culture and heritage of Pakistan, her native home.

Samiah’s works are placed in several prestigious collections, including the Private Collection of HM Queen Elizabeth. She has been a recipient of an award by the Mulberry Group in 1996 for designing their interiors, and a first prizewinner at the National Patchwork Championships in 1998. She has also sold a number of unique pieces to Harvey Nichols, London. Exhibiting her works since 1997, her solo and group exhibitions have been held internationally, including at The Emirates Fine Arts Society, Dubai (2014); Rhotaas Gallery, Lahore (2006); The Royal Commonwealth Club, London
(2005); Momart Gallery, Karachi (2004); Royal Commonwealth Society (2002); Indigo Fair (Premier Vision), Paris (1995/1996); and Whitechapel Gallery, London (1992).

Samiah completed her professional education in Interior Design from Chelsea College of Art & Design (1993) and in Fine Arts & Textiles (BA Hons) from Central Saint Martins (1997).
