Feyona Van Stom
Feyona loves to draw, paint and sculpt the human body and is also very interested in colours and abstract painting and the way colours make us feel. Her clay bodies are always a celebration of the human form and its movement. Feyona loves primitive firings and the results she gets with them from the clay. The experiment is continual, and the ideas are always changing. Clay is not the only material, as Feyona has also worked in glass, bronze, hebel, wood and metals – but clay is her preferred material.
Feyona van Stom has lived and worked in Hong Kong, America and Australia. Studied painting in Connecticut, USA and in Sydney, Australia. Received the Diploma in fine arts and won the Sculpture prize at Seaforth college of Fine Arts, Sydney in 1994.
She has been exhibiting since 1990 in galleries and local town exhibitions as well as many charity and art auctions, Art Sydney fairs, and In SOFA New York and Chicago (the prestigious international Sculpture, Objects and Functional Art fair)
She has shown her works for the past 7 years at SOFA (The International exhibition of Sculptures, Objects and Functional Art) in New York and has also exhibited at SOFA Chicago.
