Hi, my name is Fiona, and I am an artist living in the beautiful
Macedon Ranges, Victoria. In 2018 I discovered painting landscape art was my passion.
Being in nature has been incredibly healing for me in recent years and I love sharing these feelings through my work. I love to paint trees, skies, and beaches of locations I have visited. I love watching the seasons change and our environment evolve; sea’s changing form throughout the day, trees changing shapes over a lifetime, grass and leaves changing colours with the seasons, how the sky can be dull and lifeless one day then bright and spectacular the next. Blue and purple are my favourite colours and are my most used paints.
I am currently studying in the area of Mental Health, my vision
is growing and evolving and I’m currently working to incorporate my creative side with my passion for health and well-being. My hope is for people to rediscover their own creativity to find peace, focus and contentment in a supportive community setting.
The last few years have been challenging and being in nature and painting have been such powerful ways for me to let go of my stresses, I hope others can look at my art and experience the same feelings being in nature has for me.

I am a committee member of two local charities which supports and promotes awareness for people and families living with mental illness and provides support to those bereaved by suicide. Please take some time to visit:

COMMUNITY. CONNECT. CREATE.
Please take a moment to check out my new project, a resource listing support and community groups in the Macedon Ranges. The aim of this project is to create a space for people to rediscover their interests and hobbies within the community in a creativity and supportive setting.
I started painting for myself and found there was something very healing and empowering about being lost in what I was creating. I have always had a passion for mental health and I am now very driven to create changes in our system and on an individual level. Society has come along way in recognising and understanding mental illness but there is still so much stigma and gaps within local communities. There is still a lot of shame for individuals to seek support and challenges for them to seek services when they are in a crisis.
