Fiona Kingdon

I make works suggested by the wood I find, the landscapes I love, their inhabitants, and their stories.
I live in land locked  Northamptonshire, but treasure trees, mountains and most of all the sea.
I studied Industrial Design, Craftsmanship and Furniture Restoration, but put my creative side on hold for few years and dedicated my time to my family and supporting with young people with additional needs. 
Now, I depict landscapes and ideas through intricate scrollwork cut in reclaimed and native timbers. Exploring what imagery the timber offers up, or simply weaving the beauty of the wood into my designs.  
I also use veneers to create sculptural lighting inspired by natural forms.
I have led scrollwork workshops for excluded pupils, am member of the Northamptonshire Guild of Designer Craftsman and have work with galleries country wide.
