Her work has incorporated many different disciplines, including photography, painting, drawing, installations and sculpture. 

During her studies for a Masters Degree in Cross Disciplinary Art & Design at College of the Fine Arts, University New South Wales, Sydney, Australia. Fiona started to investigating the possibilities of working with multiple origami paper forms, which lead to the creation of her unique sculptures and installations.

The Equal Hearts Project installation, featured in her first solo exhibition and won the Awesome Foundation grant, consisted of two thousand paper origami hearts. The installation was a participatory artistic petition where the general public were encouraged to write a message on a heart supporting marriage equality, each heart was then strung up and attached to a hot pink rotary washing line, which is an iconic symbol representing domestic married life in Australia.

Fiona starting exploring other origami forms, stacking and gluing them together to create sculptures. Her sculpture Circle, which consisted of four hundred fortune tellers was a finalist in the international 2015 Woollahra Small Sculpture Prize.

She was also granted an artistic residency where she fused her photography and origami forms together to create the Habitat sculpture which was exhibited in Sydney, Australia and later sold to a private collector in NYC in America.

Her photography and sculptures have been recently sold and exhibited in Sydney, NYC and Rome.
