Mindy Faubion, Beyond Forming Cups
Mindy Faubion earned her BFA with a concentration in Watercolor from the University of North Texas. Her paintings have been shown in regional, national, and international exhibitions and are included in corporate and private collections. Many of her pieces have gone on to win awards, most recently she was published in “Splash 19, The Best of Watercolor”, won the Mary G. & John A. Woodard Memorial Award award through the Texas Watercolor Society, the 2017 125-Mile Visual Art Society of Texas, James J. Johnson, Jr. Founders Award, and the Society of Watercolor Artists Juror’s Choice Award in their International juried art exhibition. Watercolor is her first love, but she is prolific in acrylic, pastel, colored pencil, metals, printmaking and clay.
She loves learning unique techniques and exploring anything new that comes to the art market. Her passion to continue her education and further her understanding of these mediums is an important stimulation for her ongoing creative journey.
Over the past year, she discovered an interest in clay that has grown into an eagerness to thoroughly explore its possibilities as an art medium and after getting her hands on a ball of clay she has not been able to leave it alone. That tactile experience has become a new passion. It wasn’t long before her mind started spinning with innovative ideas, which was the motivation she needed to rediscover all her artistic interests with new excitement. Working with clay perfectly balances tactile experience, creativity, color, and spontaneous design choices.
