Originally from St. Martin, Fay Helfer received her MFA from the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD). She uses a technique in her work called pyrography, which means “writing with fire,” a method of decorating wood with a controlled application of a heated point. Looking through all her work, Fay has mastered this technique in everything from the hearts above, to stunning portraits, skateboard art, and even a handmade Game of Thrones ‘risk’ game.
I love the way Fay transforms the vessels coming off the heart, seamlessly blending the anatomical and botanical.
