Fran is a landscape artist living in the Kent Weald. She paints in oils, en plein air. Her art has appeared in various exhibitions, mostly in the South East and is held in private collections throughout the UK and she has had buyers from as far afield as Australia.
My paintings are inspired by the beautiful countryside and coastline around West Kent and East Sussex near where we live. I love working on location with my subject live and in front of me. It is challenging and sometimes frustrating but above all it is inspirational and totally addictive. Experiencing nature while trying to capture 'that moment' brings me a heightened awareness of sights and sounds. My aim is to allow my paintings to portray my personal interpretation - hopefully giving the viewer a new perspective.
