Fiona Parrott is a woodcut artist, based in Sussex. She carves her portraits of plants into wood blocks and prints them by hand on an 1844 Columbian Press. Her limited edition, woodcut prints explore the colours, textures and sculptural qualities of plants.
Each design is the result of an inspiring encounter with an exceptional plant. Fiona takes her sketchbook and woodblocks to gardens and glasshouses to draw from life. She returns to her studio to work in detail on the carvings. Every print is individually made, so each one will be slightly different.
Artists Open Houses (AOH) every weekend in May 2019: Fiona will be showing her work at bip-ART printmaking workshop (1a Arundel Mews, Arundel Place, Kemptown trail, Brighton) and printing her work from 11am-4pm on the 19th May. Come and visit!
View original prints and cards at Architectural Plants Farmers & Makers Fair, Saturday 30th November 2019, Pulborough, RH20 1DJ.
Fiona is currently Artist in Residence at Architectural Plants.
