Fay's artist's statement:  "Most of my career in art has been and is now devoted to portrait art.  However, I also relish producing fine art compositions.  Both my artistic ability and the development of it have brought so much to my life, serving to motivate, restore and challenge me.  A worthy occupation...I love to paint pictures!  The following scripture has been fulfilled in my life in many ways and surely one of them is through my art."  Isaiah 61:3 'Beauty for ashes and joy for mourning.'  "I enjoy goal is to share my knowledge with others by encouraging them to find fulfillment in learning to paint and produce art."
