Fiona Simmons works as an artist/bookshop clerk/terrible waitress in Melbourne Australia.
She has a Bachelor of Fine Art in Gold and Silversmithing from RMIT in Melbourne and teaches jewellery a little bit at Laneway Learning in Melbourne. Fiona is in America as part of a potentially round the world journey to relax, read some books and research alternative education.
She also likes coffee, cats and deserts.
Don't worry, she won't make you try Vegemite.
