Fiona studied Fine Art at the University of Newcastle upon Tyne, graduating in 1984.
Her great-grandfather was the Pre-Raphaelite painter, Sir John Everett Millais.
She paints the places and objects that she loves and which inspire her. She will walk out every day, with the dog and collect additional materials, so that stones, leaves and feathers become visual reminders of the place and time.
Fiona loves the connection between the natural rhythms of the land and how it reflects our presence or the lack of it. The way that landscapes are shaped by ourselves and our ancestors, leaving marks and echoes through time. Her canvasses are often painted and repainted so that traces of the original images remain present, creating layers of texture, colour and interwoven history.
