Frances is inspired by comic book art and vintage children�s books from the 50�s and 60�s, and loves good charity shop finds of old magazines, books and packaging. She is also a very keen historian and is currently illustrating a graphic novel documenting the search into her own Family Tree. She usually works digitally, drawing with a Wacom Tablet straight onto the computer. She then uses scanned and pre-painted textures to add depth and colour to her work. Recently she has been experimenting with printmaking, particularly Gocco prints and Lino. Frances has worked with a broad range of editorial and publishing clients including Readers Digest, The Guardian, BBC, Random House, Macmillan, Quarto and Cambridge University Press and the BBC History website.
