Jacqui Faye

Jacqui is famous for her Red Shoe Series, I feel blessed to have two paintings from the series. Honestly, if I had more wall space…I would buy more. I try to at lease buy two pieces of art from every artists. I love so many of her renderings of shoes! Hmmm, I may have to make room in my closet to hang some more…LOL!

She has some that are seductive without even a hint of womanly attributes. Just the shoes with the imagination of the viewer is all it takes to lure us into another space and time. Just what I love so much about art, taking a person out the realm of here and now, and transporting them to a different time and space. 


Shoes, presents, and ice cream….what’s not to like? The qualities of reflection and refraction of light makes it glimmer with excitement and anticipation. The texture of the bow on the box is evident. Soft material juxtaposed to the stainless steel spoon. Mmm, it’s just delicious!

A more adult approach, instead of a sinfuly delicious sundae, we are tempted with alcohol and a touch of forbidden fruit.
