My strongest inclination in art is to draw and paint people…their many characteristics ..to convey their
personalities and dignity, humor and change…to catch the humanspirit. This is the greatest motivation in my art."

"A portrait has the capacity to capture likeness..feeling..and character, while enhancing your décor with beautiful movements of paint and brushstrokes and color. A work of art…a favored possession"

—Fay Bridges Hyatt, Exodus 35:35
