Fiona Legg was born in England (1968), and moved to Canada at an early age. Always interested in the arts, she has tried her hand at a wide variety of media over the years. She now focuses primarily on mixed media sculpture. She has lived in much of the country, giving her a unique perspective of Canada. An emerging artist, in the past three years she has participated in a wide variety of exhibitions around Ontario and beyond, including the Canadian History Hall, Elora Sculpture Project, the Canadian Sculpture Competition, and the 12 Trees exhibit at the Gardiner Museum for Ceramics. She is the recent recipient of a Canada Council for the Arts Grant. She quit her career as an occupational therapist in December, 2016 to focus on art full time. She identifies as a female, lesbian and MAD artist.
I am interested in exploring a variety of media including textiles and sculptural media. My focus is primarily on objects, the stories that they can tell, and the emotions or memories that they can elicit. Patterns also interest me and I enjoy using them to soothe or to provoke emotion. While much of my work could be considered to be political in nature, I also enjoy whimsy.
