Fi’s Art House

There is some terrific and amazing talent in the Canberra area and there are a number of artists I consider to be my favourites. Some of you may remember the gorgeous painting Footloose and Fancy Free by Fiona Hill (Fi’s Art House) that I fell in love with, and adopted, a few months ago and now sits on the wall above my desk so I can admire it while I work.

Fiona creates colourful mixed media and intuitive art. Prior to the birth of her daughter she studied visual arts and taught drama and tournament of minds. Fiona continues, “My style of art was more photo representational and I was a bit of a perfectionist. With the birth of my daughter came the birth of a new style of art which I found more freeing.

“My purpose when painting is to fill a need—the need to create.  I was a single mum for 6 years and had a lot of time to explore my own needs and values. I also came to the wonderful realisation that perfection is overrated and we need to treat ourselves with compassion. I observed my daughter’s natural ability to create without worrying about a perfect outcome. She regularly inspires me.”Fiona Hill 1

Fiona is experimental in her work and likes to play with the paint rather than adhere to a strict set of art rules, and believe it’s the quirks and imperfections in the art that adds value. “The creative process is rewarding for me,” says Fiona, “and I am passionate about inspiring and enabling others, through my workshops, to connect with their own creative source.”

If you don’t have space for an original Fiona can make beautiful prints of her work, and also has a lovely collection of cards available that make gorgeous gifts.
