Engaging the viewer in a dance that plays with the boundaries of human existence, Fiona’s art captures the luminous quality of child like purity and cultivates a deep sense of wonder and well being. Leveraging vibrant color, candid lines, and fertile textures through mixed media painting and ceramic art, she infuses into the experience a sense of freedom, connection, comfort, and well-being.
