Val Fane


Val’s Bio

I am a Lancashire lass, but grew up on the outskirts of Birmingham. At 12yrs old, returning by coach from a school trip to the Cotswolds, I had an encounter with God which set me off on a journey which proved to be the foundation and inspiration of my life.

I graduated in 1960 with a Fine Art Degree from Reading University, and subsequently taught Art at secondary level, and then, at 50yrs old, transferred to Adult Education. I loved teaching, but found little time to indulge in personal art until I retired.

All my life I have been involved in prayer ministry with those who struggle with emotional or spiritual problems. Frequently, I would receive pictures to share which were keys to their progress, but never, until recently, attempted to paint prophetically. I am a novice in this area, but am greatly enjoying the challenge, using a wide range of materials, but mostly acrylics.

Whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever
is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything
worthy of praise, think about these things…
