Feyona  also opened the gallery at Whale beach and opened her own gallery in Woolloomooloo – gallery41 was open for 7 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 it’s 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.

Feyona has always enjoyed donating works to charities and feels those sculptures come back one hundred fold to her.

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 a  member of the Sculptors Society since 2009 and has exhibited successfully and regularly in all their exhibitions.

Willem has donated works to many charities and enjoys the way his works reach people.

Willem also exhibited at Feyona’s gallery41 for 6 years  and participated in 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, the Sydney artFair in 2011 and in Mosman Art gallery group exhibitions as well as HarbourSculpture 2017. Work is in many private collections as well as in a sculpture park in Glenorie and private sculpture gardens.

Willem has made large commissions for private sculpture parIMG_6324ks. His work is always unique.
