Fay is originally from rural Canada, born into a family of artists. Her aunt brought the art of Ceramics to Saskatchewan, and her parents taught ceramic classes in the basement of their home. She started painting and doing clay and ceramic work at an early age. Recognizing her talent, her parents encouraged her to take private oil and watercolor classes from a well-known Saskatchewan professional artist. By the age of 15, she had become a well-known artist in her community.
Fay went on to teach oil painting classes through Saskatchewan Community College as well as Ceramic Classes. She managed a local arts and crafts store for several years and continued to take specialized seminars in different techniques and painting styles. After starting her family, she went on to designing clothing for her children, soon selling to individuals in the community. Fay also designed clothing for local plays and theatre companies.
After moving to California, Fay completed her Masters in Marriage and Family Therapy and used her knowledge of the arts in her therapy with at risk families, children and teens. For many years Fay has been teaching Acrylic Painting Classes through several local agencies in San Jose CA, Murrieta CA, Abu Dhabi UAE, as well as taking orders for commissioned paintings. She also taught classes in Apartment complexes, Senior Living Complexes and private events. She takes great joy in encouraging others to be creative and allow their uniqueness to shine through their paintings.
