Fiona Matheson is an award-winning established artist, her contemporary, expressive landscapes are exhibited widely and held in global private collections.
As a graduate of the Winchester School of Art her distinctive textural style emanates boldness, vibrancy, and atmosphere. Based in her studio at Inverness Creative Academy, she works in both oils and mixed-media and her unmistakably personal landscapes capture the uncompromising essence of the North.
Her work is materials led. Experimental mark-making and a creative use of materials is derived from her training in textiles and as Senior Designer for Courtaulds Knitwear. To combine this approach with the imagery of her surroundings can be unpredictable and challenging.
“The process is as exciting as the outcome…. I am always looking for visual elements that interest me which build in my subconsciousness like a virtual sketchbook”.
Her colourful paintings pay homage to her Scottish homeland and welcome you in, to join her on her visual journey which embraces the history, culture and traditions which thrive throughout the Highlands and beyond.
