Frances is from County Longford and is currently based in County Down, Northern Ireland. An associate member of the Royal Ulster Academy, Frances’ work is part of the state art collection on both sides of the border. Frances has exhibited widely throughout Ireland and has had several solo exhibitions in Belfast, Cork and Dublin. Her paintings are made of exquisitely assembled layers of collage, oil paint and gold leaf. There is an ethereal, magical quality to this work that must be seen to be fully appreciated.
