Born in Bristol, Fedden studied at the Slade School of Fine Arts, 1932 to 1936, before returning to Bristol for the war years. In 1951 she married the artist Julian Trevelyan and they shared a studio together at their Thames side home in Chiswick.
From 1956 to 1956 she taught painting at the Royal College of Art where her pupils included David Hockney and Allen Jones. She later taught at the Yehudi Menuhin School in Cobham, Surrey. Fedden developed her own very distinctive style of flower and still life painting and had numerous one-man exhibitions in London and elsewhere. A major exhibition of her work was held at the Royal West of England Academy in 1996.
