An exhibition of new original prints.

Fiona was born in 1952 in Newfoundland, Canada. She has always been fascinated by the patterns, rhythms and colours of nature. This initially led to a degree in Biological Sciences at Leicester University (1971-74) but after several years of working in this field she changed the direction of her career. Printmaking at the Glasgow Print Studio opened up a whole new world; etching copper and steel plates with acid turned out to be the perfect blend of art and science. Since then her work has developed to include digital imaging, screen printing, photography, collage, painting, video and land art. Fiona has exhibited extensively in the UK and internationally and is a regular exhibitor in the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition in London.

The exhibition can be viewed on the Castle Gallery’s website: W: T: 01463 729512 E:
