As a fellow of Welwyn Hatfield's Digswell Art Trust, where Fiona has her studio, she appreciates the legacy it has had supporting past artists such as Henry Moore, Hans Coper and Roland Penrose.

"Their support continues today making it possible for emerging artists to work in an environment conducive to further development of their work," she said.
