Biography


 
Faith paints in various styles including realism, abstract, landscape and a collection of combinations that, despite their distinctiveness, share the commonality of depth.

According to Faith, being on the air was an ‘outlet’ for her young creative spirit.  It was several years later, shortly before her move to California, that Faith fell, head over heels, in love with painting.Never having had an art lesson, Faith taught herself while attempting to recreate the styles of the Old Masters.

Faith holds the utmost respect and admiration for Constable, Inness and Turner.
