Furrah has the utmost respect for the beauty in nature and sites it as her main source of inspiration. Being fortunate to have visited many destinations across the globe, she has derived a vast amount of inspiration from each journey. It was during her time living in Bangalore, India that she discovered the technique of how to feel colour, which led to a whole new perspective for her in the way she created and shared her art.
Due to her fascination of how her art could be experienced by someone who couldn’t see it but could feel it, Furrah devised and further developed her Art Appreciation Workshops for the Blind and Partially Sighted which she has successfully conducted in various locations in UK, USA, Australia, Hong Kong, Singapore and Malaysia. These workshops cover techniques for ‘feeling’ art, recognising colour energies as well as actually creating tactile art with the participants. It has been a hugely fulfilling experience for Furrah to see participants from these workshops gain skills that have led to new career choices for them in industries such as art therapy and creating art while teaching these skills to others.
