Fiona Forbes was born in Cheshire and spent her early childhood in Cyprus and Aden before moving to Edinburgh. Drawing and painting became the most important thing in her life from early on and most of her spare time was spent drawing from imagination or copying people and subjects around her.

She studied Decorative Design at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art, Dundee, followed by a year at Dundee College of Education to enable her to teach Art in Secondary Schools in Scotland during the 1970s. She also gained a City and Guilds qualification to teach adults in further education at Bangor university, North Wales, in 2003..

Having lived and exhibited in various countries in Europe and Scandinavia, she moved to Wiltshire in 2009 and now exhibits locally and teaches and demonstrates watercolours, acrylics and oils.  Her variety of different subjects are strongly influenced by nature and the beautiful British countryside. Her aim is to produce vibrant, colourful and uplifting paintings.

She has initiated and taught watercolour classes to adults in Norway, Wales and France and speaks French as well as English. She is a member of Wallop Artists and served on their committee from 2010 to 2016 and was chairman for the final 2 years. Organising and running exhibitions, for sole exhibitions and for art clubs, as well as teaching, has been a great experience for socialising, public speaking and integrating with different cultures and nationalities.
