Fionn Wilson is a self-taught artist living in London. Her main focus is expressionist figurative painting including portraits, landscapes and still life. Through her work as a painter she seeks to examine and explore the sensuality of presence in space and colour, not least the presence of the human form.
She says: "Painting is almost like a space I enter and, despite the frustrations that sometimes go with it, it is for me a place of pure delight. I love painting and I love looking at paintings. I like the thickness of the paint and the smell of it. I like the various brushes and the exotic sounding names of the different colours that I use. There are few things I enjoy as much and I paint because I wouldn’t know how not to paint. It is such a vital part of my life that I can not imagine myself without it".
