FIONA CLUCAS was born into a creative family where her artistic temperament was influenced by her mother’s discipline as a potter and painter. Her love of animals inspired portraiture in pastel, and the countryside came to influence her landscape drawings and paintings. From a young age she knew she wanted to go to Art College, and she attained her BA in Fine Arts (Painting) from Gloucestershire College of Arts and Technology in 1985. Fiona has lived in Cumbria since 1994. A member of The Lake Artists Society since 2006, she was elected into full membership of the Society of Wildlife Artists in 2013.
