Artist Profile

VAL FANE

Val’s Bio

I am a Lancashire lass, but grew up on the outskirts of Birmingham. At 12yrs old, returning by coach from a school trip to the Cotswolds, I had an encounter with God which set me off on a journey which proved to be the foundation and inspiration of my life.

I graduated in 1960 with a Fine Art Degree from Reading University, and subsequently taught Art at secondary level, and then, at 50yrs old, transferred to Adult Education. I loved teaching, but found little time to indulge in personal art until I retired.

All my life I have been involved in prayer ministry with those who struggle with emotional or spiritual problems. Frequently, I would receive pictures to share which were keys to their progress, but never, until recently, attempted to paint prophetically. I am a novice in this area, but am greatly enjoying the challenge, using a wide range of materials, but mostly acrylics.
