“Towards the end of summer and the trees are just starting to turn; the rain had stopped and the sun came out, revealing fresh clean colours. I set up my easel and worked quickly to capture this view from the cottage garden.”
– Fiona Hooper
Fiona Hooper works mainly in oil, but also uses acrylic, mixed media and coloured pencil. Her subject matter centres on landscapes and modern still life, often completed using a painting knife, with an emphasis on the effects of light and capturing the essence of the subject. Glass is a particular favourite subject and appears in several of her recent still life paintings. Her landscapes are very often painted ‘en plein air’, in diverse locations including Surrey, Sussex, Norfolk and Venice.
As well as exhibiting and selling her work both in the UK and abroad (including at the Mall Galleries, the Llewellyn Alexander Gallery in London, the Landmark Art Fairs at Teddington, the Corner Gallery at Carshalton Beeches, the Kingston Artists Group, the Musical Museum at Kew Bridge and many other venues), Fiona is a well established portrait artist, having completed many commissions including people, dogs, cats, horses, and other animals.
