Frances grew up in West Vancouver, B.C., lived for years in Ontario and now calls Fort St John, B.C. home. At an early age she gained an interest in drawing from her father who was a cartographer and her mother, an art teacher. Apart from these early influences, she is largely self taught. 
She has traveled extensively across Canada and the US collecting material for her work, taking hundreds of photos enroute, often from the back of a motorcycle. These photos are used later, along with drawings, recollections and imagination to create paintings in pastel or acrylics. Her current series, Confluence, is still in progress and focuses on ideas which emerged after a trip to Atlin Lake in Northwestern B.C.
Frances has won numerous awards for her work including, most recently, The Distinguished Representational Award in the 2021 Peace Liard Regional Art Exhibition. She has participated in group and solo shows, locally and nationally. Her work is enjoyed by private collectors throughout the country.
