Processes that evolve in printmaking and surfaces to print on to, hold particular fascination to her, as they bring new modes of expression to accurately capture a sentiment/description or communication in a work.
Communication and change is central and a common theme to everything Fiona does as a Lecturer and Program Leader of Print Contemporary Practice in the Limerick School of Art and Design. She works to create an ethos of understanding the great canon of printmaking that runs through the roots of our civilization. The potential of the print is entrenched in this ethos.
Fiona’s endeavor is to push the boundaries of printmaking, open up an understanding of the process and discuss common global matters while also keeping a finger on the heartbeat of international printmaking trends. She identifies that Limerick has a great community of printmakers and observes that it intends to keep growing and evolving.
