5. Felicity Faun 

I’ve recently come back to art, having achieved an A level in the subject 15 years ago. My subject matter is abstract, mostly based round a focal shape, taking inspiration for automatic movements there after. There is rarely a plan with each piece, being unique and one of a kind.
