Hello! My name is Farah Shah, but my Illustrator name is Fawa. I am originally from Bradford, West Yorkshire, United Kingdom. I graduated from Bradford School of Arts with a first class honours in Graphic Design, Illustration and Digital Media. Since my degree I have continued my journey towards children illustration and this is where I am today, graduating with a Children’s Books Illustration masters degree. I have a passion for creating animals with personality and getting them to do things they would never do! I am a hands on person, and I enjoy experimenting and contrasting with different media to create strong diversity images. I love exploring nature and going to the local bookshops, and I use this as an source of inspiration for my new illustrations.
