Fiona was born and raised in Fife. She grew up in a creative family with exposure to art and music as a normal part of being. Although these things were inherent to her life and her identity, she chose a different career path and has worked as a Clinical Psychologist since leaving Edinburgh University with her Doctorate degree in 2006.
Fiona never ceased in her love of art, music, writing, and the creative process. She continued to create in her personal time, being hugely inspired by historical works of Colourists and Impressionists. Her professional career in art began in 2012 when she was unexpectedly invited to exhibit at a gallery in Perth. Following this first successful exhibition the demand for her work grew rapidly and Fiona has been working as a professional painter since that time.
Fiona’s paintings demonstrate her love of colour and the practice of mixing colour, laying down patterns of light, shade and texture to produce bold representations of her subjects.
