Frances is an artist and teacher, having studied at Bath Academy of Art and at Cooper Union in New York. Frances is Artist in Residence at Bedales School, Petersfield until the end of the year, having taught at the school for the last 10 years. She is currently exploring how her painting techniques can be used in print.
Frances views her work as a journey. Working with colour and texture in paint and other materials, she plays with the conflicting planes these create. Each piece is rich in layers of colour, texture and structure so that the more you look into it, the more it reveals. This technique is clearly evident in her landscapes, which balance a distinct tension between abstraction and realism.
