Francesca Simpson's Profile
Francesca Simpson is a self-taught artist inspired by wildlife and nature. Her passion for animals and wild places began at an early age growing up in rural Northumberland and has fuelled her work as an artist ever since.
Rooted in realism, her style is broadly traditional while her unusual use of biro (Bic medium) for drawing adds a modern quirk.
Also a classically trained pianist, Francesca has a degree in Music Performance from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland but after graduating in 2010 she decided to return to her first love and pursue a career as a full-time artist.
Now based in Leicestershire, she works from her home studio, frequently undertaking private and corporate commissions and exhibiting widely.
