Fiona grew up in Argyll , studied painting at Glasgow School of Art graduating in 2000 and has since had a full time career in painting. She has exhibited nationally and internationally mainly in group shows , with three solo shows to date, Zurich, an Tobar ,Mull, and Galanthus gallery.

Presently work is at Frames Gallery Perth, Jetty Gallery Oban, Archway Lochgilphead and Stable Gallery Inveraray. Has forthcoming solo show next year at the Open Eye Gallery, Edinburgh.

Her paintings are tabletop still lifes. Heavily influenced by flat winter island landscapes, both in colour and composition; the wonderful greys of the sea, sky, wet sand, the raw brown bare earth, with the occasional splash of lichen green. The objects are from her domestic surroundings, most of which have been found over years of searching junkshops and the internet, akin to beachcombing.

I aim to create across the surface of the paper a dialogue using flat planes of colour,space, layering, exposing, mark making and scratching into. The pottery pots, kitchen utensils textiles and fish are vehicles on which to hang yet more colours.
