In Solihull on 29th May – A new business opens its doors. Faye Kent, who was born and went to school in the centre of Solihull will make her mark on the town centre, opening her very own Art Gallery.
Faye Kent is only 25, a young, aspiring artist with a unique abstract style fuelled by real women and the self-love movement. After working for a West Midlands MEP in the European Parliament Faye was made redundant after Brexit in January 2020, faced with the negative effect of the pandemic on youth employment Faye decided to revisit her passion for painting whilst still searching for a job.
Sharing her art on Instagram she was delighted to find an instant response and began selling her creations not just in the UK but worldwide with a particular high demand in the US, she then decided to go full-time.
“Solihull and the Midlands shaped me into who I am, so I am thrilled to be opening my first shop in Solihull town centre” said Faye Kent, Director at Faye Kent Art.
Positive customer impact
Faye Kent Art is a business that was made out of a desire to make women feel amazing about themselves and embrace the female form in all its aspects. With her online platform she has already created pieces that changed women’s perceptions of their bodies.
“Everyday what you have done will remind me of the beauty that I have” said one customer on receiving her first commissioned piece.
Faye offers personal commissions of your own body along with beautifully hand-crafted original acrylic on canvas and stunning low cost digitally crafted prints.
The Solihull space
Faye has gone above and beyond to create an engaging and inclusive space in the town centre where anyone can come to be part of a unique experience in Solihull. She will be offering evening painting events in order to add something different for the local community and encourage others to get creative. Her extremely instagramable photo-wall is also not to be missed.
Faye said, “The opportunity to open a gallery in Solihull is a little overwhelming but incredibly exciting, sales to date online and through social media have been extremely encouraging, especially shipping artwork overseas. The gallery is an opportunity for people to experience my art in person and will demonstrate if the retail model works for my business.”
