Born in England, Fiona lived in Kenya and Zimbabwe before immigrating to New Zealand in 1976. Fiona worked for 15 years in the television industry as a director and producer but had a long-time ambition to be an artist. Living in the UK, she took an Arts Foundation course at Camberwell College of Art before moving to Cornwall to study at Falmouth College of Arts. Her piece The Wave won first prize in the British Art Medal Society Student Award in 2005. Fiona moved home to Auckland and graduated from Elam School of Fine Arts with a BFA (Honours) in 2008. Fiona’s work is work installed at Brick Bay Sculpture Trail and she has exhibited regularly in various outdoor sculpture shows, including Stoneleigh Sculpture in the Gardens and NZ Sculpture OnShore. Much of her work deals with the concept of place, identity and colonialism.
