Fiona Powell

Painter and photographer Fiona Powell is an Edinburgh based painter and photographer.

I attend an Art Group every week at RNIB as I am visually impaired and also hard of hearing.  A long time ago I went to Art College in Dundee where I gained my Diploma of Art in drawing and painting. 

I try to work at home but find going to the class at RNIB encourages me to persevere.  I am also one of the 'Revealed' photography group and hope to do more in this field but painting is my true love.  

At college we painted with oils which I do enjoy but I find using acrylics now is more easy to manage and an exciting medium to play around with. I like to experiment and have tried using oil pastels with the acrylics to find out if that might help me 'see' my work better.

Exhibitions that I have taken part in:

  • 'Christmas Show 2009' at the Henderson Gallery, Edinburgh
  • 'Let the People Speak' at Northern Edinburgh Art Centre August 2009
  • '8th Helen Keller International Award 2009, Glasgow

I have taken part in several exhibitions with the RNIB Art Group and also with 'Revealed'.
