Paintings By Fiona Philips


Fiona Philips
Fiona Phillips is a contemporary artist living in Cedar City, UT. Much of what shapes her studio practice is derived from her experiences both as a girl in England and as part of an English immigrant family in America. Memory and relationships are a source of inspiration for much of the work she has done in the last several years. Most recently Fiona has become interested in exploring a possible connection between the 1950’s and contemporary women. 

The main focus of her studio work is figurative oil painting but she finds inspiration in other media such as photography, soft sculpture, drawing and encaustic. Fiona earned an MFA in Visual Art from Vermont College of Fine Art in 2008, and an MA in Painting from Cal State Dominguez Hills in 2001. She was an adjunct professor of art at Southern Utah University until 2009. Before moving to Utah, Fiona worked and exhibited throughout California. She has participated in numerous national, state, and regional juried shows, including shows at the Springville Museum of Fine Art, the St. George Art Museum and the Museum of Art of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. She recently enjoyed a one person exhibition at the Braithwaite Fine Art Gallery at Southern Utah University and a two-person show at the Sears Gallery, Dixie State College in May, 2009. She recently enjoyed a solo show, "Glamorous Work", at the Saint George Art Academy in October 30, 2010. Fiona is married to the love of her life and has a wonderful, energetic family.
