Artist Profiles » Fiona Whyte

Fiona WhyteFiona trained at Auckland’s ELAM School of Fine Arts in 1978. Her paintings and sculptures have been exhibited extensively since then and she has gained artistic credibility in both fields.

Fiona’s works have been shown at many galleries, including Art of this World, Morgan St Gallery, John Leech Gallery, Masterworks and are held in private and corporate collections around the world.

Her paintings are distinctly naïve and child-like but with a mature understanding of line, colour and composition. The simplified forms, vivid block colours and bold outlines show ideas of a simplified, less complicated lifestyle that many people appreciate. The works are acrylic on canvas.

Fiona has escaped the fast pace of living in Auckland City by moving to a quiet country town north of Auckland with her husband and children, who remind her to keep things simple; “like seeing through the eyes of a child”. Her work explores the city as well as more remote locations with the laid-back lifestyle of the great Kiwi summer holiday.

Fiona doesn’t have a studio at home. She improvises painting on the big dining room table, clearing up each night for dinner. She paints daily from 9-3 and having five children she has to be resourceful, amusing the smaller ones while she paints.
