About Frances

I am primarily a hand stitcher and enjoy the slow rhythm of working with needle and thread on a variety of fabrics.

Coastal landscapes and the natural world are my main inspiration. Colour, texture, line, pattern and small details fascinate me and influence my work.

I completed a City and Guilds certificate in Design and Crafts/Stitched Textiles with Creative Stitch in Suffolk and an online course exploring hand stitch with Sue Stone of TextileArtist.org, both of which have helped me to develop my practice.
