A Melbourne based ceramic artist, Fiona completed postgraduate studies in ceramics at Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology in 1983. Fiona found early inspiration in domestic objects such as water pitchers and washing bowls, from this she hand built large-scale decorative vessels. One method Fiona has been developing is transferring watercolour paintings of botanical subject matter on to ceramic surfaces. Her work in Hill End will follow on from her 2002 residency which focussed on painting and drawing the blossoming stages of plants in and around the village.
