Fiona Buchanan

Lives & works in Western Australia


I trained in theatre arts as a scenic artist and designer. This taught me that nothing is impossible with paint, that incredible illusions can be created simply by applying liquid colour. I definitely have a love affair with paint that is ongoing and I enjoy trying to put my emotion and attitude to the earths beauty into the medium. My work is about the environment and its balance. I would save the earth if I could.

I take and use my own reference photos and love visiting the places that I paint. I am always searching for just the right colour, the one that flashes only for a moment as the light shines into the water.

I work in oils, acrylic and pastel. Each of these media has its own beauty and expresses the subject in a different way.

My work advocates for the environment at all times.I have always had a green heart and I try to have as little impact on the environment as I can while celebrating its diversity and wonder.'
