Fiona was born in Sydney, Australia and grew up in the Blue Mountains, west of Sydney, studying arts and crafts at home and at local art groups including Margo Lewers’ Studio with tutor Mirabel Fitzgerald. Fiona appeared many times with other young artists on the ABC program “On the Inside” and her art was often discussed on the ABC radio programs
The Argonauts and Young World.

Fiona worked for many years doing portraits by commission, and then a series of landscapes influenced by the Blue Mountains area. She then began to paint Australian native flora, becoming particularly interested in close up studies of gumleaves, waratahs, banksias and other flowers unique to Australia. Fiona paints with oils or with a combination
of watercolours and pastels. Size: 23 × 32 cm
