My name is Fiona, and I am a full-time designer, maker, creator, artist. I work in a fantastic purpose built studio in my home. I gained a degree in design however after University I fell into a Corporate desk job that took me down an unexpected career path for many years. A move to Spain from the UK provided me with the opportunity to do what I love and to be my own boss.
I love being creative, it´s something that was actively encouraged from a young age. Not so long ago, I was reminded that I made a jacket when I was about 12 years old, using a roll of bubble wrap and a stapler! I was always making things as a child and that has not changed as I have grown older. I have always loved lino printing as the results can be a surprise and each one is unique. Many years ago a good friend sang a childhood song to me which included a spontaneous nickname for me, Fifona. When I was opening my store I knew that I would not just be selling one specific product so I wanted a name that could encompass many different items hence ´Fifona Designs´.
Beside me in my studio, you will usually find three feline companions who supervise all that I do.
