The Kennaway House exhibition recently ended was a great success. At the opening I was delighted to receive the Creative Coverage prize as well as many wonderful comments about how my works made people feel happy. I created nine new cut paper “paintings” of children and women having fun at the beach. “Ladies rides the waves” sold instantly to a charming Lady who told me she simply had to have it because it made her laugh and smile. I was pleased to sell many cards of the exhibition “paintings”. Cards are on my website now. Click here to see all the images.

I am delighted to have been approached by the editor who invited me to feature my work in Inside Artists. It is a wonderful opportunity to showcase my cut paper works to a wider audience.
One of eight new works for Sidmouth Exhibition in April. My theme has been “on the beach” where I have focused on creating more figurative images featuring children and women with aspects of the sea and sea shore as the central link.
Sandpipers Wading is one of eight new images for the Sidmouth Devon Exhibition at the end of April. Exploring new styles of working with cut paper, and evolving a path to bridge the gap between realism and design.
The design incorporates influences from other cultures and showcases my developing cut paper technique.
The exhibition at the David Burley gallery Birchington-on-Sea, got a mention in Kent Life:
“An exciting joint exhibition is currently on show at David Burley Gallery in Birchington featuring the work of Fiona Scott-Wilson and Penelope Timmis.
“Kent-based Fiona Scott-Wilson studied as a graphic designer and has evolved as a versatile artist working in different styles from impressionist to realism. Experimenting with acrylics, oils, gouache and inks Fiona has more recently developed a new style with the medium of cut paper in a brightly coloured graphic style that reflects her love of oriental and art nouveau design.”
