Robert Fionda



Robert Fionda is an artist/art educator. He believes, “Everything is about the visual message and how best to translate it using the attributes of watercolor. Over forty years, I have evolved from a realistic recorder of details and images to someone who wants to paint the suggestion and not the fact. I believe, the challenge is always learning how to climb to the next artistic plateau.” 

Fionda has exhibited with the American and National Watercolor Societies. He has won numerous local and national awards. Robert currently writes ArtSpeak for the AWS Newsletter and he is an inaugural signature member of the Michigan Watercolor Society. Working either in a studio or a plein air format his watercolors can be viewed at or
