Francesca enjoys undertaking commissioned work, and spends about half of her time every year, on bespoke pieces. She takes great pride in working together with her clients to develop pieces that they really love. Previous projects have taken her throughout the UK, and to locations in East Africa, Afghanistan, the USA, and Europe. She regularly visits East Africa and Scotland, and can be commissioned to paint a favourite landscape or wildlife subject whilst there.
She loves the challenge of painting groups of people within a landscape, such as military and sporting groups, and specialises in paintings of houses, landscapes, and animal portraits. She also undertakes fine charcoal portraits.
Please see more details and examples below, and feel free to contact Francesca to chat through a commission idea.
‘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
'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 ‘
'Throughout the commission Francesca was highly professional and totally dedicated to capturing the right scene / event. The painting was first class.'
