Contemporary Folk Art

Faye so eloquently says, “I want the joy bells of Heaven to ring in your hearts when you see my art.” Since the third grade, Faye has realized that God blessed her with an artistic talent not given to just everyone. At age twelve, she briefly changed her career choice to school bus driver, but that didn’t last for long. For twenty years, she has worked with acrylics in what she calls “scrub art.” After her brushes finally reach the scrub stage, she is ready to paint, thick or thin. Most of her work can take as little as a week or as long as a month to complete, depending on the size of the project.

Faye has experimented with various kinds of artistic media. She has done a little of everything from print making to sculpture but says that drawing and painting are her “heartbeat.” Her training in the arts comes from many sources including the University of Montevallo, Mississippi University for Women, and several individual artists such as Lillie Wells for print making, and Bob Thompkins and Katherine Dunn Metz for painting.

The most rewarding aspect of art for Faye is “using a talent that God has blessed me with to make others smile. I want people to see the beauty in all things made by God, even if it is a purple cow.”
