Feyona has also owned a gallery in Whale beach and opened a gallery in Woolloomooloo – gallery41 for 5 years, exhibiting both her own works and works of other contemporary artists, including her sculptor son Willem.
Feyona loves to draw, paint and sculpt the human body and is also very interested in colours and abstract painting and the way colours make us feel. Her clay bodies are always a celebration of the human form and its movement. Feyona loves primitive firings and the results she gets with them from the clay. The experiment is continual, and the ideas are always changing. Clay is not the only material, as Feyona has also worked in glass, bronze, hebel, wood and metals – but clay is her preferred material.
Willem van Stom – Willem has been sculpting since 2006 when he realised the pieces he took out of the cars he was repairing had an interesting look to them and could be used for something besides their original purpose. Willem has been member of the Sculptor Society since 2009 and has exhibited successfully in all their exhibitions.
Willem has also exhibited at Feyona’s gallery41 for 5 years and participated is several group exhibitions with the National Grid gallery, gallery 307, Global gallery in their sculpture exhibitions, the Palm House in Sydney’s Royal Botanical Gardens and at ArtSydney 2008 and 2009 and the Sydney artFair in 2011. Work is in many private collections as well in a sculpture park in Glenorie.
