“Fiona was an enormous help to us when we moved back to Australia. We wanted to feature Australian artists. She listened to what we wanted, shortlisted great artworks to suit our budget, and took us on gallery tours. Her knowledge of artists is second to none. In a short period of time we were able to select art we both loved and felt connected too.” Libby & Tom, Sydney  2021

“Fiona knew a great deal about her subject, asked excellent questions of the artists and was
interested to know more about each member of the group. Perfect!”

“Fiona was fabulous, she clearly had invested enormous time, energy and creativity into
preparing and delivering on this tour. Her lecture was intelligent and very well researched
and her chats with the various artists were engaging and informative.”

“Fiona is a veritable “art bank” Was most willing to share her incredible
knowledge with the group at all times.”
