Local Artist’s Success In Major National Art Exhibition

Her fascination with capturing or depicting movement remains a thread in her pastel work which is often a personal response to physical and emotional aspects of being outside in the landscape. 

Fiona’s artwork has taken an increasingly ecological theme. Coastal erosion, global warming and the complex relationship between nature and humans upon our planet, provides the inspiration behind often large-scale pieces. Colour, structure, texture and light remain constant elements within a variety of subject matters in which weather, temperature and a sense of space often feature.

I love the flexibility of working with pastel. There are so many different ways of applying and working with this fabulous medium that provides opportunities for both drawing and pastel painting. I find the immediacy of application and richness of colour exciting. I am constantly learning and exploring.

  1. My Word ! As a very long in the tooth Pastel Artist I wish I could produce work of this expertise and magnificence. Congratulations Fiona in your well deserved success. Would you consider travelling to St Boswells, 10 miles north of Jedburgh on the A68 to do a workshop on a Saturday or a Sunday for our Art Club. We would be so grateful if you could. Best wishes, Tony

So, like many other artists, I do get some scam emails, purporting to be interested buyers from overseas. It is a common problem. These scams are very clever and we need to be very alert to the issue.
