Frances is a contemporary artist with a practice encompassing drawing, sculpture and movement. Translating thoughts around the body and space into objects, her works are fabricated through a labour intensive process of pattern cutting and hand stitching; drawing material and making references from puppetry and accessories. Her sculptures range in scale from handheld objects to large floor standing works, incorporating welded armatures that enable unlikely forms to balance in space.
Frances studied model making at the Arts University Bournemouth and Sculpture at the Royal College of Art. In 2017, with the support of QEST she trained in hand sewn shoemaking – developing the skills that influence her current practice. Her works have been exhibited in the UK and the US, including Collect, London and FOG Design and Art, San Francisco.
