Born and bred in Kent, Fiona loved painting as a kid and used to paint her versions of the Disney Characters. She always wanted to do something with art and went to the Kent Institute of Art & Design to see what the possibilities were. She was inspired by the works of David Shepherd and Norman Rockwell for their detail and diversely different styles.
Fiona usually works in watercolour but can also do pencil or acrylics, depending on what is required. Her style is realistic, but not photo realistic; “I just like it to look as it’s meant to be.” Her work includes natural history, botanical, people and scenes.
Outside of the artistic field, although not too far removed, she loves pottery and makes and sells her own pieces and enjoys photography as well as cycling but is “not too good at that and invariably end up in a ditch.”View Full Bio
