Fiona Mackenzie-Spence

Page 1 | Biography


Finding the artist within has come late in life for Fiona Mackenzie-Spence, who after many years of being in business, emerged as an Artist in July, 2013. With no formal training, but years of passion for both photography and Fine Art, she has now found what she describes as her reason for being. In a short space of time she has already found her distinct style and the first time one of her paintings was exhibited, won The Vera Skinner prize. Her photographic art epitomises the marriage between Fine Art and Technology with a highly unusual result and individual style that is fresh and contemporary. Fiona also paints using mixed media, describing her work as “a meeting of paint to a surface that is instinctive and entirely abstract”.

A photograph may be taken and then used as a ‘palette’ from which to create from there, using technology, so that often the finished piece bears no resemblance to the original image. This process is beyond 'enhancement of a photograph'. It is this combination of camera and technology, used to create art, that lead to the registration by Fiona in 2013, of Cameratechart ™ as a ‘New Authentication In The Field of Works of Art’.

I have been interested in photography since the early 1970’s and developed a passion for Fine Art in the early 1980’s, with particular interest in Abstract art. It seems however that living life and being involved in business prevented me from the expression of my own creative ability. Changes in personal circumstances meant that at last I was free to emerge and develop my talent and explore limitless possibilities. With no formal training, I am simply following my heart and instinct with the subjects I choose to photograph or paint. Colour, shape, texture, simplicity, complexity, light, shadow and the reflective qualities of water and glass are all aspects that demand my attention.

It’s as if art has been sitting there within me like one of those dormant seeds waiting years for the rain and as I take the initial steps into the world of art, it’s with an excitement and purpose that, until now, has eluded me.
