Dobinson works from Trewidden Studios, Buryas Bridge, near Penzance. She says: 'I love the tension between the inner and outer spaces we inhabit.'

Faye was born in London and after completing her 'A' Levels had a variety of jobs before joining an art collective in Woolwich. In 1997 she worked, alongside other artists, from a studio in a disused factory in Greenwich. 'Second Floor Studio & Arts' flourished, moving to Southwark Bridge. Travels in Mongolia and Tibet followed, and on her return she enrolled at Falmouth University, obtaining a BA in Fine Art, which she completed while raising her daughter as a single mother.

Her oeuvre includes a series of paintings of female musicians, entitled 'Unsung' which was exhibited in Cornwall and London. She has also participated in 'On St Michael's Way', a collaborative project in which a number of artists interpreted the ancient route from St Ives to Penzance.

She is a tutor at Newlyn School of Art (2016).
