Fiona Tabart

influenced by the motifs and essence of traditional Japanese and Chinese art.

About

Fiona Tabarts designs and makes in various media and expressions such as stencil cut acrylic and sandblasted form-ply.  She is inspired by the beauty found in the irregularity of natural forms and structures, influenced by the organic patterns and designs of William Morris and the arts and crafts movement, and the motifs and essence of traditional Japanese and Chinese art.
