This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Johnstown, Pennsylvania, Faye Badura became a painter who settled in New Hope. She studied at the Pennsylvania Academy with Daniel Garber and Arthur Carles and also at the Barnes Foundation. She exhibited with the Society of Independent Artists.

She was also a craftsperson, who restored antique paintings.

Peter Falk, "Who Was Who in American Art"

Biography from Jim's Of Lambertville:
New Hope Impressionist and Modernist painter, and wife of legendary frame-maker, Bernard "Ben" Badura, Faye Swengel was born in Johnstown, Pennsylvania.
She began her art studies at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in 1923, under the tutelage of Daniel Garber.  While there, she was put in charge of selecting Academy students to receive scholarships for studies at the Barnes Foundation.  In 1926, she won the Academy's prestigious Cresson Traveling Scholarship for study in Europe and spent four months abroad in England, France and Italy.  She also studied at the Barnes Foundation as well as with avant-garde modernist painter, Arthur Carles.

While at the Academy, Swengel met Ben Badura, a fellow art student, and in 1928, the couple married.  They lived first in Reading, and then Harrisburg, before moving to Center Bridge in 1930, also home to Edward Redfield. In 1937, the Baduras bought a property on Main Street in New Hope which was an art studio, frame shop, and home to them for more than fifty years.  Faye was the recipient of many prestigious awards during her career, including the Mary Smith Prize and a Gold Medal from the Pennsylvania Academy.

Swengel's work was exhibited in major venues such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the National Academy of Design, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Corcoran Gallery of Art, the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Cincinnati Art Museum, the Woodmere Art Museum and the Phillips Mill Community Association.  Her work is in the permanent collections of the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, the Woodmere Art Museum and the James A. Michener Art Museum.
