Fen undertook Art History & Drawing at college in Somerset. On leaving college her art was put on hold for many years whilst working for employers in unrelated streams. In the early 2000’s she returned to art in her spare time creating dog and equine portraits. In 2016 Fen took early retirement allowing time to diversify in medium. She attended weekly human portraiture classes and a selection of sculpture courses. Fen studied sculpture using a range of styles & teachers: clay sculpture courses in Somerset & Devon with further courses on wax modelling in Dorset, where she now lives. Continued professional development in 2021 included ‘Oil Palette Mixing’, for her painting, and ‘Anatomy for Sculpture’ for 3D work.
Inspiration is never too far away from the living world. Utilizing various elements of previous employment, but particularly Personal Training, Fen applies her deep understanding of anatomy & physiology in her painting and bronze creations. Her sculptures, both representational and abstract, are cast in Bronze.
