Faye has a teaching background, and has worked more especially with senior secondary art students who are specialising in painting. Over recent years, she has taught adults, and worked privately for art groups and various institutions. This has been a valuable and rewarding experience for her.
She has worked prolifically, and painted whatever has been at hand with great love and devotion. Subjects such as still life, city-scapes and landscapes in a variety of mediums but more so, using the medium of pure watercolour, or watercolour combinations with ink or gouache.
Faye's current art practice shows a pre-occupation with a variety of subjects. Outback Australia continues to hold a fascination and on going connection; the unique landscape, its heightened colour, vast expanses, and patterned forms offer her endless possibilities.
She has spent a number of years in the Mansfield area of Victoria, and is currently based in Lower Plenty, Melbourne. She has exhibited widely in group exhibitions and held a number of solo exhibitions in Melbourne and country Victoria. Her works are represented in private collections here and overseas.
