Faye Dobinson lives in Penzance, UK, with her daughter. She is an artist, curator, a Celebrant and runs our practical-based mentoring course, the year-long Defining Practice and teaches our online course, Inspired by Paula Rego. Faye is also a tutor on a number of our Online Life Drawing Sessions.
Faye is a South East London-born and West Cornwall-based multi-disciplinary artist, activist and educator.
She is passionate about art and creativity’s role in creating conversation, community, and heart-led change.
She works in a range of disciplines including painting, drawing, printing, site-specific work and assemblage, and has travelled widely to meet other creative communities and look at the role of art in their lives. This socially engaged practice has run through her 25-year career, finding form in leading a wide range of creative projects in London with disaffected young people, working with children with emotional and behavioural problems, within her teaching and also in her own artistic output that asks questions of power and love.
The relational aspect within her work has resulted in her exhibiting and teaching in Mongolia, exhibiting and working with artists in Tibet, helping open Europe’s first Contemporary Tibetan Art Gallery in East London, ‘The Sweet Tea House’ and now sees her implementing ‘The Jupiter Project’, a space of possibility for artists and creative, based at Jupiter Gallery in Newlyn.
