Road trip! It’s the essence of Australian family getaways. Throw the kids in the car and drive. Destination west to the Blue Mountains, inland to Dubbo, Tamworth or Armidale, south to the Southern Highlands, Narooma or Victoria, north to rolling hills of the Dorrigo Plateau, Byron and Queensland. Fiona paints the images you see on the way to your destination.
‘Driving through the countryside is still one of my greatest pleasures and within my work I reflect on my love of the Australian landscape, its colour, contrast for dark shadows and intense light, its familiarity to our psyche and sense of escapism that it makes us feel.’
