About Fiona Mittag
Fiona was born in London England and completed an Honors Degree in Modern Languages and History of Art at Bristol University. She also spent one year at Salzburg University in Austria. Apart from London, Fiona has lived in Vienna, New York and Tokyo before settling in Connecticut where she created M & F Antique Prints and Framing at the beginning of the 1990’s.
While living in New York Fiona completed a course at Parsons School of Interior Design which developed her interest in color combinations as used in interior decoration. She began to experiment in making her own decorative mats using hand-drawn lines, watercolor washes as well as the use of linens and silks with the aim of enhancing but never dominating the artwork itself. The color, texture and size of a mat influences the overall effect of the print or painting and when appropriate can be linked by means of the matting to the decor and style of the room.
Fiona is happy to visit the client’s home to advise on print choice, matting and framing options, as well as to offer interesting and innovative ways to display and hang artworks.
M & F offers a unique combination in today’s art market. Apart from selling original antique engravings and lithographs, M & F specializes in personalized custom matting and framing of all artworks to create a truly individual piece, in harmony with the client’s interior design setting.
