She was named the League’s Outstanding Member in 1999 and awarded the CCAL Best in Show in 2004. Faye prefers the forgiving nature of oil, enjoys creating both still life and landscapes, and occasionally does figurative works and portraits. She attributes her love of oil painting to impressionist painter, Ilona Royce-Smithkin, and nationally known portrait artist Craig Carlson. Her favorite modern day painter is Richard Schmid, author of “Alla Prima: All I Know About Painting”.Faye's art is currently on display at Palmetto Fine Arts in Chapin, The Blend in Prosperity and The Gallery in Newberry.
