I am a self-taught animal artist living in Derbyshire. As an animal lover I am fascinated in the ‘soul’ or character of animals and so the focus of my pictures is invariably the eyes. I create my artwork in a variety of media, including felted artwork and paintings on vintage maps working hard to spread a message of conservation whenever possible. My pastel work is in private collections world-wide and my felted work, which is exhibited nationally, has won awards including Chairperson’s Choice with the Association of Animal Artists. Pet portraits and commissions undertaken, please contact FrancesDaunt@btinternet.com for further information.
