Born in Guildford, a local girl, Fiona studied Art at what was then known as the West Surrey College of Art and Design here in Farnham. She works mainly in acrylic, applying thick layers with credit cards, ﬁngers and occasionally a brush from her studio in Upper Farringdon. Her work is inspired by the beautiful local countryside where she walks daily with her dog, but her love of colours and use of space on the canvas is what excites her the most about painting. Fiona’s goal is to make her paintings come alive, using colours that bring her energy on to the canvas. Many have been painted whilst dancing in her studio and this adds a real vibrancy to her work.
