AN ARTIST is promising visitors work like they have never seen before when she opens her studio and gallery to the public as part of the Warwickshire Open Studio event.

Fiona Parkinson opened her studio in Stratford after being awarded a master’s degree with distinction while collecting the College of Arts Award at Lincoln University.

Fiona said: “As a local artist I’m really excited to be featured as part of this year’s Warwickshire Open Studies event. I look forward to welcoming art lovers to my studio and gallery, where one thing I can guarantee is that you will see artwork like nothing you have seen before!”

“My techniques combine traditional methods of preservation and taxidermy with modern tools and technology to create beautiful pieces of artwork that can equally inspire emotion and wonder.

“I have received an overwhelming amount of interest in my work in the last couple of years, resulting in me sending pieces to collectors and galleries all over the world.”

Warwickshire Open Studio’s aim is to make art accessible for all, welcoming artists of all ages and abilities working in a diversity of mediums.

It has been running since 2000 and is celebrating its 21st birthday.

This year 400 artists will be exhibiting at 149 venues throughout Coventry and Warwickshire.

The event takes place at Fiona’s studio on High Street in Bidford on select dates in June and July.
