Hello I’m Fiona, the illustrator and owner of Fiona Clabon Illustration.
I’m a collage illustrator, creating colourful and playful collages using
hand-textured, cut paper. I work and live in beautiful Bristol, and love
the short walk to my shared creative studio each morning.
The process of my collage’s creation is unique, combining my love of printmaking with clean collage to provide you with special additions to your home and unique gifts for friends and family.
To create my collage papers I first roll out coloured printmaking inks onto a large board. Pressing a piece of plain paper down into the wet ink and then pulling the paper back up leaves the piece of paper covered with beautiful speckles of coloured inks. These are the papers that I then cut up and use to make my collages.
I have a degree in illustration from Winchester School of Art, which allowed me to explore process, form and colour, and has given me the skills I need to execute each collage with thought, care, precision and a little fun.
Working from my light and bright studio at BV Studios in Bristol, I create a range of Prints, Greetings Cards, and Coasters. These are all printed locally through an independent printer in Bristol, and are vibrant, full of life and of excellent quality.
