Fiona Humphrey

Fiona Humphrey is a printmaker based in Leicestershire.  An elected member of the Leicester Society of Artists, she is also a member of The Printmakers Council and the Leicester Print Workshop.

Fascinated by our individual sense of self and how we relate to the physical world about us, Fiona revisits those quiet moments when we are perhaps most ourselves, seeking stillness and space, in time and place.  Using bold graphic carving and loose gestural mark-making, allowing strong patterns and subtle tones to add depth and tension, working with and against each other in her compositions.  Texture and tone informed and inspired by our eroded and repaired surroundings.  Inspired by natural and manmade incidental marks, light and shadow, patched roads, broken plaster, shifting clouds or simple lines of erosion.
