My journey

Welcome to the Heart of Nature Studio by Fiona Gypsy Bunting,nestled in the beautiful Derbyshire countryside.Being surrounded by nature you can't help but feel inspired by it.The change of the seasons brings about changes in the landscapes and in inspiration.
When i see a fox,hare,crow or other countryside creature I can't help but let my childlike imagination run wild,imagining these creatures homes and families and friends.Fox smartly dressed,going back home after a night time stroll to read a paper by the fire.Hare finding food for her children for breakfast,whilst they are all tucked up in bed under patchwork quilts,the kitchen table set with fresh linen and mismatched bowls...

A lot of my inspiration also come from childhood stories and book illustrations I remember as a child.An image can say so much and stay with you,telling different stories to all who view and conjure up memories too.
As a child i would always be making something,sewing or lay on the floor with my drawing book and pencils.
In my 20's I became a florist,studying floristry part time in college whilst working in a flower shop. I continued this line of work through my 2 children being born and growing up.
When i reached 40 I suddenly decided it was time to do the thing i had always wanted to,go to art college! So i left my jobs and enrolled at Chesterfield college for a course on art and design.I'm so glad I did! I was totally inspired and felt so at home there among other creative people,it was a magical time.
After a year i left and set up my own business so that i could focus on creating full time,I love the freedom to create anything i feel inspired to and in my own space,it's where i find my 'peace' along with natures magical energies.
Blessings,Fiona :)
