Francesca is based in London, and is happy to travel for commissions.
Previous projects have taken her throughout the UK, and to locations in East Africa, Afghanistan, the USA, and Europe.
She loves the challenge of painting groups of people within a landscape, such as military and sporting groups, as well as paintings of houses, landscapes, and animal portraits. She also undertakes fine charcoal portraits. She regularly visits East Africa and Scotland, and can be commissioned to paint a favourite landscape or wildlife subject whilst there. Please see below, and in the drop down menu for examples, and feel free to contact Francesca for more details and prices.

'Frannie did such an exceptional job on my children’s portraits! I had tears of joy when I first saw the finished work! She captured their features, hairlines, dimples etc all so perfectly and was an absolute professional. I couldn’t recommend Frannie more- the portraits are my pride and joy ‘

‘She has perfectly captured the spirit and likeness of our naughtiest family member. As an artist Frannie has a critical eye that misses nothing, as a business woman she is timely, professional and a pleasure to work with’ Alex and Alexandra
Landscape commission, Invernesshire,
This time lapse shows some of the many layers of an oil painting's development. Francesca builds up her paintings over at least 20 layers of oil paint, providing a spectacular depth of field. This was one of three paintings commissioned for a private estate. Francesca was able to visit the house and see the exact places where the paintings would hang, so that the context could be understood, when making decisions about colour, composition and subject.
