Fiona combines painting, sculpture and textiles to explore the histories of landscape space in relation to the decorative interior. She completed a PhD at the Slade School of Fine Art in 2016 and has exhibited her work internationally. She has also undertaken a number of site-specific commissions for UK heritage sites.
Fiona is committed to the making process within her practice and she will use her QEST funding to undertake a two-year part-time course in Tapestry Weaving at West Dean College of Arts and Conservation. Combining these traditional skills with innovative techniques, Fiona is focused on contributing to the resurgence of interest in the use of tapestry as a fine art medium in the UK.
