It began as an exploration of the human ego, by challenging the expected imaginings of extraterrestrial life as humanoid. Removing the artist or viewer from the artwork turned out to be impossible- both Chrys and the viewer are within every painting, sculpture, drawing,and piece of embroidery.

Paintings & drawings by Fiona Hayward

15th June - 21st June 2022

Daily 10am - 5pm


Realism is my preferred style of painting and drawing a single wildlife subject, sometimes with an abstract background.  My first solo exhibition held in Feb 2020 was a series of artworks I had been working on for over ten years, these were about mankind's relationship with nature & how The Line between Endangered & Extinction is in mankind's control.   

Art and wildlife are both important to me and I plan to continue with works that focus on our wildlife's beauty and some of the challenges they face in a changing climate. 

I enjoy drawing with standard pencils and painting with acrylic's as well as oils.
