Faye Nasser-Joley’s work has been inspired from her many solo trips abroad. These trips included a year-long stay in Rome where she set up a studio and studied the work of the great Italian masters.
Faye has had numerous high profile events including being commissioned by Heathrow (the host Olympic Airport) to create a series of Olympic portraits to celebrate London’s 2012 Olympic Games. These included a portrait for Paralympic gold medallist Ade Adepitan, 2012 Olympic eventing horse and rider Marcelo Tosi and Eleda-All-Black, Paralympic gold medallist Lee Pearson’s horse Gentleman, and Stirling Moss OBE
Later that year, Faye had the honour of meeting HM Queen Elizabeth II and introducing her Majesty to her artwork. The Queen was very complimentary of Faye’s paintings, in particular her equestrian portraiture due to her Majesty’s love of horses. In the Queen’s Jubilee year, Faye was invited to paint in the ‘Best of British’ arena at the New Forest Show, which was covered by the national media.
An ambassador for art in education, Faye has worked on a variety of educational creative projects within the community, most recently securing a Gold Art OFSTED award for one of the largest schools in the South, the highest award possible. Faye also supports the Rose Road Association for disabled children.
