With a background in fashion and academia, Francesca has worked with young talent and understands how minds can be pushed and nurtured, helping to crystallise new ideas and build confidence: a key theme underpinning the message of her work.
‘My work focuses on the diversity of the female faces, using simple lines and the use of patterns and colour to describe the mood of the subject. My women appear on paper, making me feel empowered, enlightened and happy. I create my work to enable others to feel this also. I love working with pastels, ink, paint and digital media. Having no rules in place, just to enjoy the freedom and expression of building these unique characters on paper or canvas. The women I create all have different names and are linked by my drawing style of long necks, yet, each person has her own focus and symbols of individuality.’
Francesca’s main body of work uses the female form, predominately using faces, pattern and the use of colour, which helps to strengthen a mood or bring to life the personality of her subjects. Her artwork is illustrative quirky and beautiful with a distinctive style that centres around depicting contemporary women’s faces as well as pretty botanicals.
