Phiona is an award winning paper artist and book sculptor.
Her work is directly linked to the ‘Make do and Mend’ ethos where people’s belongings were either given a new lease of life or repaired.
Phiona takes inspiration from historical costume especially from the Victorian and Tudor Eras and the repetitive domestic chores that women used to perform.
Traditional techniques such as crochet, lace tatting, needlework, kumihimo cording, pricking, origami and paper filigree are employed to create her interactive and textural book sculptures and jewellery pieces.
Phiona has appeared on Channel Four alongside Kirstie Allsopp on the Channel Four show ‘Kirstie’s Handmade Britain’.
Phiona continues to offer a range of creative workshops where she generously shares her skills. She has exhibited in London, Paris and New York, her work has been shown in a variety of venues including Somerset House, the Harley Gallery, Nottingham Contemporary and The Collection at the Usher Gallery.
We are delighted to be showcasing Phiona’s work in our Spring Show entitled MERAKI; her work is perfect for this as it’s all about doing something with soul, love and creativity. follow Phiona over on Instagram and call in soon to see her work soon.
