My name is Fiona, I was born here in Barnstaple, grew up on a farm in rural North Devon and now live in a local village. I grew up rooted in our landscape, fed, and nurtured by the soil, wind, rain, and sun! I have a deep interest in creative work which reflects the uniqueness and heritage of people, place and landscape as well as human relationships with our natural environments.

With a background in biological sciences and as a Founding Director of the North Devon UNESCO Biosphere Foundation, I’m interested in connecting people with the world around us. For the last 18 years I’ve worked in the performing and visual arts as a creative producer, fundraiser and more recently artist working with many creatives and companies including Appledore Visual Arts Festival, Beaford Arts, Bureau of Silly Ideas, Burn the Curtain, Invisible Dust, Red Herring Productions, Running Dog Theatre, Ruth Mitchell, Stacked Wonky Dance and Viv Gordon Company. Many of these companies, make and perform inspiring work in outdoor locations ranging from urban streets to high cliff tops to ancient woodlands. Creating The Walking Place is a result of being able to work with all these amazing artists!

For many years I’ve wanted to create my own outdoor walking experiences that celebrate the people, place, and environments of our beautiful area, this year’s Fringe Theatrefest for the first time, has given me the opportunity and space to do this. THANK YOU!
