Fiona Frank prefers to let the pictures speak for themselves. She resists categorisation as she has also avoided association with any particular 'school', but chooses to stay free from such fetters and allow herself to take whatever route the subject matter suggests. If forced to describe her work, she says the term 'impressionist / expressionist' could be applied, and in many ways this is a good summary. Her vivid and vital work draws its inspiration from some of the most beautiful displays of nature - woodlands, gardens, meadows, flowers, lakes, rivers, streams, moorland and coastlines -where she likes to capture the spirit of the place by painting en plein air. This brings with it the added demands of working against time to capture particular combinations of light and shadow, and to beat the weather: indeed some of her favourite works have resulted from the special light in between showers, responding to the extra challenge of avoiding the worst that the environment can send!
Fiona exhibits as frequently as possible and her work has won many awards. Keep track of her awards and where her work can be seen by following ths link.
