Franci W was inspired by my paintings.

I paint from my imagination. When I was thirteen years old Sir Charles Wheeler, the past president of the Royal Academy wanted to buy my flower painting, which had won first prize in a competition in East Sussex.

I have been an artist for many years, working in a variety of mediums - paintings, mosaic tables, walls & trays and textiles.

I am a colourist, I love colour in all its variety and paint from my imagination. My paintings are organic. An image may appear on the canvas and will become something - a flower, an abstract, a figure. I don't have a prefixed idea.
I have been lucky in my life to have lived in very exciting colourful places - Buenos Aires, London, New York. These places have had a great influence on my paintings. My work which I have been told adds life to the environment, has been sold to businesses and homes.

People have been telling me for years that some of my paintings would translate well as wearable art. I love the idea of original artwork transformed into beautiful velvets and silks. A daring splash of colour, something different. I am very excited to share my vision with you, and here it is! The limited edition of scarves and shawls inspired from my flower and abstract paintings.
