Mary Fedden

Goodbye Mary Fedden, whose work I have so much enjoyed. I hope you are happy and reunited with all your cats and objects and beloved people in a magical place with zebras and teapots and vases of brightly coloured flowers. Thank you for all your beautiful paintings.

Sad news. I have two cookery books by Jocasta Innes with Mary Fedden paintings on the covers.

A few years ago we saw some of her paintings at Castlegate Gallery in Cockermouth.
They were soooo beautiful!

Oh. I didn't hear about this on Radio 4, how sad. I love and have loved her work for so long, loved the odd bits of perspective and shape. I shall miss the dear one.

Sue, thank you so much for this post. Until I read it, I had no acquaintance with Mary Fedden, and now that I've been clicking across to various sites, I am informed.

I hope that some day I will be able to see some of her paintings before my eyes. Meanwhile, I certainly admire her work, and her influence on her direct and indirect pupils.

My, what a long life she had, and what art she saw and made during those years.

A lovely tribute Sue, i enjoyed reading your previous posts about her work and I can see that she has inspired your work a little too?

I am sure her spirit will live on in her paintings and in the work of those who she inspired.

I loved her painting at the Summer Exhibition last week and was drawn back to it repeatedly. I didn't know she had died.

She was a beautiful woman and a wonderful artist. I love her life enhancing, joyous paintings.
A long life, well lived I think. Your words are lovely and so fitting.
