Frances is a self-taught animal artist living in Derbyshire. As an animal lover she is fascinated in the ‘soul’ or character of animals and so the focus of her pictures is invariably the eyes. She creates her artwork in a variety of media, including pastel, felted artwork and paintings on vintage maps. She works hard to spread a message of conservation whenever possible. Her pastel work is in private collections world-wide and her felted work, which is exhibited nationally, has won awards including Chairperson’s Choice with the Association of Animal Artists.
