Bismillah (In the name of God).

Jannah Farooque is a visual and jewelry artist that pulls her creative inspiration from the Most High, love and the inherent beauty and goodness that we all possess. Self-taught, Jannah began her journey in 2011 by painting on small pieces of wood that she’d transform into wearable art. Wanting to expand her artistic expression, she began painting on canvases with acrylic in 2012. Her visual artwork is heavily inspired by the global indigenous community. As an African-American Muslim, born and raised in Denver, Colorado, Jannah highlights these many perspectives. Also a poet, her writings are focused on social justice and our inward reality. She hopes the totality of her work will help the world remember God and realize that nothing is as bad as it seems.
