The lead artist of our Painting Farnham season is Fiona Pearce whose work in the Foyer Gallery features her much loved Farnham landscapes, often depicting a unique but recognisable view of the Bourne Woods.
Born in Guildford, Fiona studied Art at what was then known as the West Surrey College of Art and Design here in Farnham. She works mainly in acrylic, applying thick layers with credit cards, fingers and occasionally a brush from her studio in Upper Farringdon.
Fiona's work is inspired by the beautiful local countryside where she walks daily with her dog. Her love of colours and use of space on the canvas is what excites her the most about painting.
Fiona's goal is to make her paintings come alive, using colours that bring her energy on to the canvas. She sees the world in a geometric format, breaking down images into shapes before translating that on to canvas.
