Artist of the Week: Fiona Roberts

This week our celebrated Artist of the Week is Fiona Roberts! Fiona's wonderful paintings cover a broad range of subjects, but one of her key sources of inspiration is nature. Her work can be seen on her Shed Profile, and she introduces herself below. Enjoy!

Wave, by Fiona Roberts

Following an education at the London School of Economics and Goldsmiths College I was desperate to paint but was too busy being an academic researcher, teacher and mum. I eventually found a window of opportunity a couple of years ago and have been unable to stop since. 

Joy III, by Fiona Roberts

My subject matter is diverse but is mainly inspired by nature, drawing particularly on my background in the Lake District where I was brought up on a farm, and by Lyme Regis.
The last 12 months have been very busy. I was lucky enough to join The Shed and take part in the Coast exhibition and I took part in Lyme Regis Artsfest. I was also selected to exhibit at the Menier Gallery in Southwark with the United Society of Artists and was shortlisted for the 2011 Cork Street Open Exhibition. I regularly exhibit at Par Ici, Twickenham and am currently in the Spring Exhibition at Portland the Gallery, Richmond. This exhibition runs until the 23rd of March.
