Fiona chose to not study visual art in university and instead opted for general arts, illustration has always been her career of choice. Her desire is to create illustrations people may interpret with ideas and creative dialogues of their own.

Fiona will fly to Los Angeles and participate in a week long workshop taught by the contest blue ribbon panel of judges lead by Cliff Nielsen (Chronicles of Narnia) artwork, followed by the gala awards ceremony at the end of the week.

Other famous illustrator judges participating in the contest are Stephen Hickman, Sergey Poyarkov, Ron Lindahn, Val Lakey Lindahn and Laura Brodian Freas. The Contests were initiated by L.
