Fiona Chinkan
Fiona Chinkan is a New York City based artist who grew up in Princeton, NJ. Fiona began her signature style of drawings in 2001, as a way to accompany graffiti lettering she was exploring at the time. Over the years, she has developed the lines and forms as a means to express herself and interpret the world around her.

She graduated cum laude in 2007 from the University of Hartford Art School with a BFA concentration in Visual Communication Design, minors in Photography and Art History. She moved to New York City post graduation to pursue a career in graphic design. She currently works as a digital art director in the fashion industry.

Most recently, Fiona was one of the recipients of the Anne-Reeves Artist Residency at the Arts Council of Princeton and exhibited collaborative work with fellow artist, Maria Doering, at the Taplin Gallery in May 2017.
