Faye Pool is a self-taught Charleston artist having begun in the first grade with the encouragement of a teacher who had her illustrate a book she read. She thought everyone could draw and paint for she found it so easy to do, probably because her mother could also draw. Along the way she did take lessons from artist such as Jim Booth and always enjoys watching other artist work. Her work is mainly acrylic for oil “just takes too long”. Faye was the first female Nuclear Engineering Draftsman at the Charleston Naval Shipyard and designed the logos for the Nuclear Submarines during her six year career. She is now retired from a 40 year career as a Realtor and has started to paint and teach under the name of “Paint for Pleasure”. Artist can paint along with her and create their own work of art as she gives instruction and furnishes the materials at their parties. She can be found painting on rocks and acting in plays at her church, St James United Methodist Church, in Goose Creek when not in her home studio or traveling enjoying Gods creations!
