Fiona Phillips received an MA in painting from Cal State Dominguez Hills in 2001 and an MFA in visual art from Vermont College of Fine Art in 2008. She was an adjunct professor of art at Southern Utah University until 2009.
Her work is influenced principally by her childhood in England and the experience of emigrating with her family to the United States. Memory and relationships are a source of inspiration for much of the work she has done in the last several years.
Most recently she has become interested in the (lack of) similarity between women today and in the 1950s. She works primarily in oil but she finds inspiration in other media— drawing, photography, soft sculpture, encaustic painting, and so forth.
Her work has been exhibited nationwide at galleries and museums including Springville Museum of Fine Art, St. George Art Museum, Museum of Art of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and Braithwaite Fine Art Gallery at Southern Utah University.
