Sentient means being able to perceive and feel things. Art tells the truth through beauty – enabling us to see and attend, paying attention to something and each other. Faye Hall’s paintings tell stories – whether the paintings are for the books that she’s illustrated or stories about family and friends, her energetic repertoire will tell a story or remind the viewer of their own.
Following a 25 year career in advertising design and widowhood, Faye made a complete change to working as an administrative assistant in the office of singer/songwriter Steve Bell. Exposure to his music, travel photography and the poetry of Malcolm Guite resulted in a re-awakening of her love of painting. Faye’s life-long faith in God is also evident in her prolific repertoire of realistic and abstract portraits that are charged with energy, passion and colour.
