ABOUT

Fiona Winning is a visual artist, coach and workshop facilitator living in Bristol

My work is sometimes serious, sometimes playful, but always about prompting or nudging people to look at the world around them in a different way.

Having first trained as a painter, my focus was mainly on painting and printmaking, my work now includes a more socially engaged way of working, looking at possibilities for real time encounters, by devising propositions for people to engage in actions that encourage creative participation, discussion, community, reflection, imagination and change.

I do not look for resolution, in fact, that is rather the point. At times serious, at times playful, my work is about relationships and what it feels like to live in this world. I have worked and continue to work in the education and personal development sectors alongside my art practice. I graduated with a BA Fine Art Painting from Winchester School of Art.
