Feyona van Stom was born and raised in HK of European parents.
Now Australian and married for 46 years to an Australian, they have 7 children and 9 grandchildren together.
Feyona’s work is all about the infinite variety of the female human form. The sculptures come from the shapes she gets from her life drawing – and has been working in clay and bronze now for over 30 years.
She has exhibited her works in Australia, and in USA. – where she was invited to exhibit her works for 5 years in NY and CHICAGO with SOFA. (Sculpture, Objects and Fine Arts). And afterwards in galleries in Oregon, Washington, Philadelphia, Honolulu.
