SHERYL FAINGES

Palette Knife Art in Acrylics

About the Artist

Brisbane Artist Sheryl FaingesHi, my name is Sheryl Fainges and I am a local Brisbane artist. I have recently become a semi-retired teacher and as a result, I now have the time to explore my love of ART.

It has been over 15 years since I last held a brush and painted in oils. Now, I have turned my hand to painting in acrylics using a palette knife only. I recently attended a weekend workshop held by the Brisbane Institute of Art and this gave me the confidence to step out using this technique.

I have always studied art. During my initial teacher education training, I studied sculpture and later I received a Graduate Diploma in Visual Arts from Griffith University. Over the years, I have enjoyed studying under various local artists in the Bayside area.

I love all aspects of art and hopefully during my teaching career, I have been able to install a love of art into my primary school students.

Palette Knife Art

This year, I have turned my hand to painting in acrylics and using the palette knife only (even my signature is written with the palette knife). I love the freedom of expression and texture provided by the palette knife. Every painting is unique. Colour blending is left largely to the palette knife, which allows me to explore the developing picture as the knife creates a unique flow of colour within the subject matter.

Although, painting with a palette knife allows for freedom of expression, I find myself still striving for an element of reality within my composition.

I enjoy painting a wide variety of subject matter as each brings with it a new learning curve.

In Ken Done’s words, "… art's everywhere. It's how you use your eyes. It's about the enjoyment of visual things…   ‘

Below is a selection of my art which is for sale. All come with a Certificate of Authenticity and most are wired and ready to hang. I am also happy to accept commissions.

painting of flowers, floral, florist

This painting is exhibited at Manly West State School. All are accompanied by a Certificate of Meaning which tells a message using a variety of flowers standing in a vase.

Message: The Iris means your friendship means so much to me. While the pink carnations let you know that I will never forget you. The sweet peas say thank you for a lovely time. The cattail or bulrush send my blessings of peace and prosperity to you, while the palm leaves wish you success for the future. The Bells of Ireland express good luck and finally, there is babies breath, where I leave you with my everlasting love and friendship.
