Further news on Sir Andrew Motion's Portait
1st November 2016
As mentioned, the Sir Andrew Motion portrait goes on show in the Edinburgh National Gallery on 25 November. This is going to be a big event - "Scottish painter goes home" said one commentator. Maybe not so exclusive news but about right. After Edinburgh, the painting will now go south to the New Walk Museum & Art Gallery in Leicester for 9 April 2017 to 11 June 2017. Then it's "home" to Radley College.
Fiona is one of "Britain's foremost portrait painters" says the Daily Telegraph. She is one of just 50 painters selected from more than 80 countries for 2016 BR National Portrait Gallery Summer Exhibition.
She is also one of Britain's foremost landscape painters with her work covering idyllic river and wildlife scenes in Britain to edgy landscapes and individuals in Pakistan and the Taliban country along the Afghan borders.
Fiona is one of the most sought after teachers on Painting in Italy courses with followers coming from all over the world to be taught by her in Venice, Sicily, Florence, Saragano and Montefalco. And she now runs workshops for all levels of painters – beginners to stars – at her studio in East Sussex.
