BBC & THE MEDIA

BBC RADIO 4
Fiona & Juliet
A Portrait Of..

At the end of 2014 BBC Radio 4 made a unique programme with Fiona - painting a portrait. The BBC always says the best pictures are on Radio. This was the case on the first Radio 4 programme about Fiona. It was an enormous hit!  Fiona painted the former Poet Laureate Andrew Motion and the BBC eavesdropped on the sittings and recorded not just the sounds of painting and technique, but the conversation between two artists - Painter & Poet as they discussed the mix of feelings of what they did.

In Spring of 2016, Fiona was commissioned to produce two more portraits for this Radio 4 series - Imtiaz Dharker and Lemn Sissay, both renowned poets. 

The BBC have just released the 2017 series of Radio 4 programme "A Portrait Of...".  listen to Fiona painting and speaking with Juliet Stevenson, the actor; Danny De Niese, the opera singer; and Ed Watson, principal ballet dancer for the Royal Ballet.
