Fiona Dalwood is a multi-disciplined artist based in Melbourne, Australia. Having practiced art since she could wield a crayon, Fiona quickly mastered pirate stick figures and dive-bombing birds at an early age before moving on to study drawing at the Victorian College of the Arts where she graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in 1999. Since then Fiona has exhibited her art work nationally and internationally, and has been featured in nice big coffee table books and has even had the amazing opportunity to see her work turned into LEGO street art as part of LEGO’s Festival of Play celebrations in 2012.
A practising artist, Fiona is also known for holding down a diverse range of Big Kid jobs such as being a graphic designer, web developer, book publisher, cartographer, and many things in between. She finally figured out what she wanted to do when she grew up and at age 32 returned to school to study animation at the VCA.
Her short animated films ‘The Comeback‘ and ‘The Batchelor Experience‘ have toured many film festivals around the world. Fiona’s most recent film production was “Good Grief“, a short animated documentary that looks at what we have to gain from losing something we love. Good Grief has been all around the world at festivals and screenings, and has found distribution through leading educational institutes. Find out more at the film website.
