About Fiona Willis
I am a Bristol based artist working in watercolour and ink. My drawings are professionally reproduced as giclée prints on acid free watercolour paper or as cards.
You can see my work by following the links on the site here. I've written a few words about some of them, just reflecting on their particular inspirations.
All my prints are signed and numbered from a limited edition, generally from a run of 100. If you are interested in trade purchases of either cards or prints, please contact me
My prints start their life as wholly original works in pen, ink and watercolour. They are then scanned to produce a digital image from which the giclée prints are produced. However, the digital image is not manipulated in any way and is entirely representative of the original artwork. I've found this process to be the most effective way to reproduce the fine detail that characterises my work.
Creatively I have been a late developer, although I now realise that many of my designs have been in my head for years. I wish I had started a long time ago... but I am what I am.
I was brought up in South Devon so the coast and countryside have been major influences on what I draw. I use a rapidograph pen, an approach that probably comes from my mother who was a draughtswoman when I was a child. I remember borrowing her pens and using them to trace, in great detail,
