ānāyā arts was born when Fiona finally stepped out of her comfort zone & faced her fears.
There was something hidden behind the mindless doodling, the love for art class & the various sketchbooks. It was only until her 30’s that Fiona was able to accept herself & accept that she was a natural born artist!
Sticking to her African roots & embracing her unique artistic style, Fiona’s art celebrates people of colour, hair & culture because representation matters.
Fiona strives to inspire others to create art, no matter what their art may be. She also motivates people to follow their bliss because that is when everything starts to naturally fall into place.
“When I run after what I think I want, my days are a furnace of stress and anxiety;
If I sit in my own place of patience, what I need flows to me, and without pain.
From this I understand that what I want also wants me, is looking for me and attracting me.
There is a great secret here for anyone who can grasp it.”
