Mini GE Mandala II by Fiona Kerr Gedson

Fiona works from her home near Ōpōtiki, in the Eastern Bay of Plenty, New Zealand, within the boundaries of the Whakatōhea Iwi. Having also grown up in Tāneatua & Rūātoki, within the presence of the Tūhoe people, she acknowledges that these relationships have contributed to her perspective on life. She shares her home with her two daughters and has two sons that have recently left home.

Fiona has created for as long as she can remember. “Grandma collected masses of fabulous resources for us to use, and always my creations were proudly displayed in her home. We had a family friend who worked for a carpet company and he generously supplied me with wool – one ball of my finger knitting could go round our house twice!”

Fiona’s meticulously crafted feather pieces have been described by Curators as “meditative and encompassing of many cultures”; that they are “an expression of her family, life-stages & spirituality”.

She counts herself fortunate that she is well represented throughout New Zealand and has had the opportunity to participate in international group exhibitions. Her art awards are many and Fiona’s work is now recognised worldwide with it being held in many overseas collections; Luxembourg, France, Switzerland, Canada, Scotland, China, Britain, U.S.A, Australia.

Although Fiona is an internationally acclaimed artist, she has a simple philosophy, “My work allows me to reflect and honor the things that are important to me. Through my work I have had amazing opportunities to connect with such interesting people and share some incredible experiences. I am full of appreciation that this is my life.”

Fiona wants to create soulful and elegant pieces. It goes without saying that this is what she has achieved, and it is inspiring to listen to her passion.
