Frances recent work is shaped by an exploration and mapping of the landscape. Walking has always been integral to her practice and forms the initial framework for her research where she engages with the physicality of place, in association with the multiplicity of invisible forms.

“I have a curiosity about place and how particular places feel, my inquiry reaching beyond the understandable and straightforward aspects of the landscape to embrace and embody that which is unseen; mythology, culture, history and archaeology, interweaving the many disparate strands with the complexities of lived experiences.”

Her travels through the landscape are embodied in artist’s books, assemblages, installations, paintings and drawings.
