Fiona's Way of Seeing My granddaughter, Fiona Robins, sees a specific color for every letter of the alphabet. This phenomenon is defined by Wikipedia as synesthesia, in which stimulation of one sensory pathway leads to involuntary experiences in a second sensory pathway.
The above collage print is Fiona's special way of seeing the alphabet. Signed prints will be available for $250.
Another one of Fiona's unique talents is being lead singer in the Maine based punk rock group, BAITBAG. Fiona, Claire Donnelly and Courtney Naliboff formed the group in 2018.
