Biography from Pocock Fine Art & Antiques:
Raised in Italy, Fiona P. Corn was nurtured by the treasures of the Italian countryside and the Italian artistic heritage.  The daughter of avid art collectors, she was exposed to European masterpieces from an early age.  She was trained as a professional painting conservator at the Istituto per L'Arte e il Restauro in Florence, a school focused on conservation, and spent the next ten years restoring paintings for prominent museum and private art collections.

In 1996 she opened an antique and fine-art business in Alexandria, Virginia, where she exhibited original oils by important American artists from the 19th and 20th centuries.  Surrounded by works from artist such as Emile Gruppe, Aldro Hibbard, and Anthony Thieme, she was inspired to wet her brushes again, following the Plein Air tradition of the great American landscape painters.

Fiona P. Corn has attended workshops by Barbara Nuss, Don Stone, Matt Smith, John Budicin, Ron Rencher and Ralph Oberg.  These workshops took her to the Hill Country of Texas, pastoral Vermont, the Allegheny mountains of Pennsylvania, Eastern Shore and Monhegan Island.  The diversity of scenery found in these locations and the intense inspiration she gained from her teachers evoked the passion that one sees in her balanced and luminous studies.

Fiona is a member of the Washington Society of Landscape Painters (WSLP) and the Oil Painters of America (OPA), both Juried organizations with limited memberships.  She is also an active member of the American Institute of Conservation (AIC) the Art League in Alexandria, Virginia, and the Allied Artists Of America.

In 2002 she was one of only seventy-five artists selected nationwide to participate in the "Carmel Plein Air Invitational."  She also has been selected to attend the Southeastern Regional Oil Painter's of America Show in Richmond, Virginia.

In 2002, she painted in California, Martha's Vineyard, Florida, Turkey, and St. Lucia, and she plans many more painting trips in the United States and abroad.

Artist Statement:
"Working in oils, I strive to capture romantic landscapes in an impressionistic style. My goal is to depict the vibrant, fresh and spontaneous beauty of nature. I am inspired by the never-ending magic of the outdoors, and I paint on location whenever possible. The feeling of finally capturing the moment on canvas is exhilarating.  Every new painting I start is another adventure and a learning experience.
