Hi everyone! My name is Fiona Hannon, and I am an artist originally from Redditch, Worcestershire, but have been living, in Nottingham for over thirty years. I work full time as a teaching assistant, but have had a love for drawing and painting since I was 6 years old, (when my big sister, Sheila, taught me how to draw a face) and used to dream of being a real artist. Being very shy and lacking in confidence held me back in many ways, so I never pursued my dream of being an artist, but I never stopped practicing, and developing my skills.
