Fran at the CURTAIN UP Exhibition in Lewes
Fran White has developed her artistic practice over the past 20 years. In 1998 she graduated from Farnham with a degree in Woven & Printed Textiles.
Since 2004 she has attended yearly courses at Seawhites tutored by Emily Ball, Katie Sollohub, Nick Bodimeade, Helen Turner & Gary Goodman.
She is motivated by working amongst and listening to other artists, visiting exhibitions and museums, being open to all sorts of possible leads and getting hooked by a new process or subject.
She is continually researching mark making materials, using acyrlics & mediums as well as graphite, inks, chalk, oil pastels & spray paint on all sorts of surfaces - paper, canvas, cane & linen blinds - often incorporating her own linens as the background or part of the painting.
