Frances’ art is inspired by the incredible complexity and beauty of Dartmoor.

She is fortunate to live on the moor, so experiences all seasons and weathers. To make sense of this landscape, she has built up a series of motifs. Do we not all do this?

For example the colours of the Devon hedgerows in spring and summer, the gaze of livestock, the crow silhouetted against the sky on laced hawthorn trees and the colours of granite on misty days.

She hopes these images resonate with you too.

She works with different media including pen and ink, pastels, gouache and oils.
