About FrancescaWhetnall

Sales 97
On Etsy since 2011

Painter, Printmaker and Pattern Designer with an illustrative style and a love of colour

I've always loved to paint and create artwork from an early age. Watercolour was my medium of choice for many years until I took a course in printmaking in 2011 at Bournemouth’s Arts Institute and I was hooked. By the end of the year I had quit my day job in IT to become a full time artist.

I grew up in south London where I studied at Wimbledon School of Art in the early 90s, but I'm now based in Bournemouth on the beautiful South Coast of England. I've exhibited work at Bankside gallery in London and at galleries in Poole, Bournemouth, Winchester, Southampton and Hastings. I'm a member of Dorset Artists and Poole Printmakers.

At the end of 2013 I became a mum and around the same time I discovered digital pattern design tools. A lifelong love of colour and pattern meant that the discovery quickly led to a pattern addiction! Happily, pattern design fits a little more easily with full time motherhood than painting and printmaking do. I now have over 300 patterns available as fabric, wallpaper and gift wrap over at my Spoonflower shop.

I plan to return to painting and printmaking in the future but for the moment my focus is on pattern design. Over the coming months I will be working with a production partner to apply my artwork and pattern designs to a range of high quality products including T-shirts, bags, phone cases and digital prints.

My artistic heroes include Hockney, Kandinsky, Edward Bawden, Quentin Blake, Nick Park and Shirley Trevena. My love of colour and graphic, illustrative approach is key whether the subject is animal, portrait, landscape, still life, floral or abstract.
