Fiona’s paintings are primarily based on landscape. The paintings are produced in her studio, sometimes on the completion of a journey, perhaps to the landscapes and coasts of Cornwall and the west of Scotland or further afield. Her daily walks out with her dog, in and around the farm, woods and heath lands near her home, provides a rhythm to her work and a source of inspiration throughout the seasons. Her works are rarely directly representational, as they evolve from memories, drawings and notes. Small objects on her walks will sometimes find their way into her compositions, which when painted add a sense of place and time.
Fiona is the great-granddaughter of the Pre-Raphaelite painter Sir John Everett Millais.
