Fariza Basri is a miniature artist from Malaysia.
Using watercolours, gouache and soft pastels, she paints small scale images from everyday objects to celestial landscapes. Fariza describes her artworks as “Small windows into my world”, artistic portals bringing viewers into her own experience of life and imagination.
