Fiona Hamilton is a Bristol based printmaker. Her work explores the ecological sublime and an appreciation of the majesty of nature. She uses detailed intaglio etching, drypoint, lithography and chine collé in her prints, to draw the viewer into an ethereal landscape, that has an impact on our sense of place in relation to the natural world. Fiona primarily uses black and white, with natural tones of chine collé, and sometimes layers of lithographic texture, to introduce warmth to the stark palette and to invoke a sublime emotional connection. Detailed wood engraving is used to hone in and examine specific details within the eco-system. She works from sketches, photographs, notes and memory to create her original prints.

Fiona has an MA in Multi-Disciplinary Printmaking from The University of the West of England (2023). Previously she studied Graphic Fine Art at Canterbury (2002) and established well respected printmaking business Soma Gallery in 2004.
