Born and brought up in Glasgow, Fiona Morton has always been fascinated by wildlife, particularly birds. This lifelong obsession for the natural world, enhanced by childhood family holidays to the isle of Islay, has been the catalyst for her pursuit of a career in conservation, education and the outdoors. Experiences of wildlife in its natural habitat inspire most of Fiona’s work, within which birds feature most prominently. Guidance and encouragement from Scottish linocut artist Hugh Bryden have led to exciting new opportunities and Fiona held her first joint exhibition with Hugh at Gatehouse of Fleet in 2016. Fiona hopes to continue to develop her skills and draw inspiration from the natural world. She currently lives in Glasgow where she works as an ornithological surveyor.
