In parallel to this body of work Fiona also works as a printmaker and painter. Her steel plates are often emerged in streams or in woodlands
waiting for the imprint of nature’s movement to make its marks. This process can take up to eighteen months to be realised. Her work also
includes contemplative essayistic texts, poetry and prose about painting, dance, music , printmaking, time and the creative process. Fiona says of her work that, “it is autobiographical- it is a self- portrait of my gaze”.
