"Original oil paintings inspired by the everyday. Putting the Extra back into Ordinary."
Australian artist Fiona Verdouw doesn’t believe that anything is ever truly ordinary.
Inspired by her everyday surroundings, Fiona’s paintings highlight ordinary scenes and familiar objects – to reconnect them with her audience.
Distinctively painted, with a love for light and form, her colour-rich paintings create moments of recognition and the occasional bout of nostalgia.
Originally a graphic designer and illustrator, Fiona took up oil painting in 2016 to scratch a lifelong artistic itch she could no longer ignore. The itch hasn't stopped, and neither has her painting habit.
Her prize-winning paintings feature in local and national art prizes and exhibitions, with sales and commissions from local, interstate and international buyers.
