Art of Faye Hall

Canadian artist Faye Hall is a painter, illustrator and designer from Winnipeg. 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 music, travel photography and poetry resulted in a re-awakening of her love of painting.

Recently, Faye published a new book “ART Begets ART – One Artist’s Inspiration,” telling the story of the inspiration behind a prolific repertoire of realistic and abstract work that is charged with energy, passion and colour. Faye is also the published illustrator for the children’s book, “The Biggest Family in the World,” written by Paul H. Boge and published by Castle Quay Books in Dec. 2014.
