Biography

Passionate about art since childhood, Fiona’s first contact with the art world was submitting works to the Texaco Children’s Art Competition in Ireland.  She attended the IADT, Dun Laoghaire for two years, however, a change of career direction led her to leave Ireland.    Having travelled extensively, she settled in Brussels where she continued painting, getting involved in various art groups and workshops and drawing on the stimulation different cultures offer.  It is this fusion between her Irish roots and her experiences  abroad that give her works their vibrency and energy.  Having worked in all mediums her latest works are in oils and acrylics.She is currently attending the Art Academy, Beeldende Kunsten Overijse (BKO), Belgium.
'My work is an ongoing process of research, both technical and emotional, I love life and people and try to import these feelings and expressions in my painting.'
