Fiona Sutherland


Fiona Sutherland grew up in Scotland in an artistic family, influenced by her father David Sutherland, the legendary Beano artist.

In 2008 she moved to Nelson, Aotearoa where she makes sculpture and paintings and teaches art. Her work is always figurative, often whimsical and emotive, and often utilises animals to explore human dynamics and relationships. Her stylised characters are decorative and carefully rendered with attention to beautiful details.
