About Fiona Kingdon - Artist in Wood

Silhouettes, landscapes, keepsakes and other artworks. No lasers, CNC, 3D printing or plywood here! I am compelled to work with wood and I am at my most content when at my saw.  In a world full of the mediocre and mass production  masquerading as art and craft, I am determined to at least try to skilfully make something that’s beautiful and one of a kind. So, I create art pieces suggested by the wood I find, the landscapes I love, their inhabitants, and their stories. Working in solid, native or rescued timbers,  I create  intricate images that emerge over many hours of cutting by hand with a scrollsaw. Skill and attention to the material is required, nothing is perfect, nor is it able to be reproduced endlessly at the push of a button. I love to explore the imagery the timber offers up in its  grain pattern, the contrasts within the wood itself, or simply weave the beauty of the wood into my designs.  Its a joy to work a material that’s so giving and I am determined to do justice to the trees that gave it.
