Favell Bevan-Arti

Experienced and popular pastel artist - her views of the local coast and children at play on the beach inspire childhood and holiday memories in everyone that sees them!

Born in Kenya, Favell has travelled and lived in a variety of places - Italy, where she gained her gained her Fine Arts Diploma at the Florence Academy of Fine Arts, Cyprus, Sweden, Finland, and the USA. She moved to England in 1998 from Northern Cyprus and now lives in Sidmouth, Devon.

Her medium is mainly pastel, as it is one of the most direct methods of catching the fast moving light in nature that she manages to incorporate into all her pictures.

Favell spent some years teaching art at Adult & Community Learning centres in East Devon specialising in drawing and working with pastels. Favell now concentrates solely on her painting, and although she also paints with acrylics she has recently returned to her much loved pastels and has once again been drawn back to the sea and coastal scenes that have always inspired her.

Favell also paints portraits and pet portraits and will happily accept commissions.
