Portrait of Fiona in her studio by Alun Callender


I graduated from Central St Martins College of Art and Design with Dinstinction for my MA in Communication Design / Illustration, where I specialised in printmaking.

Since then I have had regular exhibitions and some published work. I am associated with various galleries and have been a member of Southbank Printmakers Gallery, London SW1 since 2004.

The urban environment fascinates me. In my work I recreate scenes based on observations of people and places I see around me in my everyday life.

I make paintings and I hand colour my prints, sometimes using collage, so each print has its own individual quality. Some prints are available in small editions up to 25, others are available as unique prints.

I have two presses, a large one which is situated in my studio in St Leonards on Sea and a portable one, which I use to run printmaking workshops at other venues.

Fallen Angel

Long live the anti heroes!

"This is inspiring work by an artist who has the perception and empathy to feel and cherish the popular pulse of the times. The sheer energy, sexual desire and the irresistible will to live and be damned seep through the pores of her characters.

She has a very fine technique and an eye for captivating compositions together with the artistic flair to capture life in its vibrancy,

There is also a feel of 1930’s Berlin fused with the glam rock glamour and flamboyance of the 1970’s and 80’s. She has the scalpel of Beckman and the spirituality of Chagall, a deep sense of humanity pulsates within each work.

Her selection of colour evokes a strange and enchanting beauty which seems to come from within the people themselves, long live the anti heroes!"
