About the Artist
Fiona Watson's subject is a fascination of "the patterns, rhythms, forms and colours of nature in a microscopic and macroscopic sense," which she expresses through a number of media including etching, screen-printing, digital printing, photography and painting. Many of her etchings are influenced by a minimalist Zen approach. Other sources of inspiration include ephemera, bookshops, travel and music.
Initially studying Biological Sciences at Leicester University. After several years of working for various medical journals, Watson eventually studied printmaking at the Glasgow Print Studio-etching copper and steel plates with acids this in turn was the perfect blend of science and art. As a complete contrast and foil to messy printmaking, Fiona Watson also works extensively in digital printmaking
Fiona Watson has exhibited extensively both at home and abroad. She is a regular exhibitor in the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition in London. Her work is held in a number of collections worldwide.
