About The Artist

Fi Channon has been passionate about painting and drawing from an early age. As with many artists, what initially started out as a hobby, soon evolved from painting purely for pleasure to creating pieces of artwork for friends. The transition from hobby to possible career had begun. To fund this effort, a more commercial enterprise was required resulting in Fiona setting up her own greeting card company for a short time.

Later, in an attempt to gain direction, Fiona decided to study graphic design at Farnborough Technical College. However, this was to be cut short by a car accident. It was during her recuperation and moments of solace that followed that she began to channel her artistic abilities. Working mainly in pastel and charcoal, Fiona was able to use this medium to express her own personality and inner self.

Fiona’s fascination and understanding of the human form has resulted in her producing many portraits and commissions for private clients.

Today, Fiona works mainly with pastels and inks. Her inspiration comes not only from the physical world and her experiences from the various places she has lived, but also from the spiritual world, through meditation, expressing her charismatic personality and her inner self. She creates each painting in a meditative state – being guided by feeling and intuition. The results are varied and rich and explain the different styles she produces.

Healing Through Art

These are turbulent times for many people and the stresses on the body and mind can sometimes be overpowering. Sometimes, we feel the need to reach out for help, but we do not know from where, or what it is we seek.

Fiona Walter-Channon has been involved in a holistic and spiritual way of living for many years and she has developed a way of transferring healing energy to people in need. It may simply be in the form of healing with a “hands on” approach, but more interestingly, she is able to channel paintings with healing energy to help the person in need to grow, heal and recover from whatever ails them.

By sitting in meditation with a pad and pencil, Fiona asks for a picture relevant to the person who has come to see her and then waits for a picture to come through her hands.

The energy in the room changes considerably and the sitter will feel the benefits whilst waiting for his/her drawing. The pictures themselves are able to bring forth issues that have perhaps been buried for some time in the sitter’s psyche and in this way, the issues are dealt with and healed.

The pictures may appear to be different at various times, as certain aspects are surfacing, enabling the sitter to understand why they are feeling the way they do. The painting will speak to the subconscious and sometimes the first viewing can be surprising, but on a very deep level, the painting is already working. After a time, the painting will seem different. The effects are long-lasting and beneficial. It is a gentle therapy of a very different kind.
