Fiona Calder has been providing us with greetings cards since we opened our gallery in York. We now also have an exhibition of some framed prints of her work.
Fiona studied art and jewellery design before going on to train as a graphic designer. She has a love of flowers which grew from spending childhood summers in the colourful garden at her green-fingered grandparents' home, and it is flowers which are central to her work.
Fiona creates her beautiful artworks by using traditional art techniques such as paints, pastels, pencils or fine liner pen illustrations, alongside contemporary digital art. Each individual element is created by hand, before being assembled with digital collage into fanciful meadows or whimsical arrangements. A huge amount of time, thought, talent and heart goes into each piece.
Fiona’s studio is in the heart of the picturesque City of York where she works in a bright and sunny room overlooking the city walls.
The exhibition of Fiona’s prints will be here at village gallery until the end of October.
