In 2009 Fiona graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the National Art School and in 2010, received an Artstart grant from the Australia Council. Fiona is also a trained
upholsterer and gained her City and Guilds Certificate in the craft, at the London College of Furniture in 1991. She has had a life long intrigue toward the workings behind the
objects that populate our everyday world. This coupled with her creative bent, has led her to turn her maker’s hand to many diverse applications over the years and has resulted
in a broad skills set.
Fiona currently works through the medium of sculpture using reclaimed materials and found objects. Her art classes are designed to facilitate a reconnection with a creative creative process.
In 2017 Fiona reconnected with her trade as an upholsterer and also teaches upholstery classes in both Sydney and rural NSW.
