My book Joyride hit the press and came out before Christmas 2019! I am very proud of this collaboration with the author Arielle Haughee and definitely gained a huge appreciation for the work that goes into illustrating a book! I hope there will be a sequel to this wonderful little story about these rather unlikely friends.

Who is the Artist FayBecca?
Hello! I am FayBecca and my passion for art is what has inspired me to pursue and live my dream as a Painter working with all forms of mixed-media, including acrylics, oils and textures.
I have been greatly influenced by my family, especially my mother, who was a successful artist in her own right with her use of oils and her visionary works of art.
Art History: How it all started…
My art journey began later in life after a long career as a teacher. I had always been drawn to art but had put it aside as I taught children the “love of reading” as a School Librarian and raised my own family.
It was the summer of 2013, when I finally retired, that put me on my artistic path and my dream finally became a reality. It all started when I picked up that that first paintbrush.
At that moment, “I realized I had found my ultimate passion in life!”
This emotional energy grew and is apparent in all my work. I take pride and enjoyment in what I do, but I am especially proud of my ability to capture the essence of animals and the elements of nature in an alluring and captivating way.
This was the moment FayBecca Designs was born and I have now been painting professionally since then.
Recently I have added variety and lots of color to my work and especially to my pet portraits. Take a look at what’s NEW!
Oil and Acrylic Paintings: Highly Acclaimed Pet Portraits
Most known and dear to my heart are my pet portraits, I also do other paintings but my love of animals is where I am drawn and is what first moved me. Since dogs had become the center of my universe, I decided to do pet commissions.
Painting is the closest thing to Meditation!
I love listening to calm music which inspires me with a peaceful atmosphere! My two Maltese pups always hang out and nap with me as I create and when asked “What do you think?” …they look at me with that quizzical turn of the head. A sign that they are pleased is when they take valuable nap time to give me lots of puppy dog kisses!
I fall in love with all the animals I paint…
…and pride myself on the ability to capture the essence of these pets through their eyes. Their eyes are the pathways to their soul. These souls touch my heart and I can remember the names of most of the pets that come across my easel. Many of the animals I’ve painted are going or are gone. I have been through the pain of losing my pets which were my best friends. Each one of them put their paw print on my heart and I think of them often. In memory of them, I have painted them all and have them surrounding me in my studio for inspiration. I know they are smiling down on me!!
Since most of my pet painting commissions are painted from either a photograph or a sketch for reference it is very important to submit good photographs.
Check out my FAQ page for more pet portrait information and for answers to most common questions.
It is not all about animals and pets! I paint many different subjects with a variety of styles and techniques. I guess you could say that I am am an “eclectic painter with a unique since of style!”
My creativeness comes from capturing random glimpses of nature either in the abstract, with a bit of realism in the mix. I am motivated by my love of wild animals, pets, sea life, plants and flowers and just about anything else that catches my enthusiasm and imagination.
