An example of fine art by Fran Davies

I grew up in the suburbs of New York City, and have been drawing for as long as I can remember. I focused on art through high school and earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Syracuse University.After graduation, I kept a sketchbook during my daily train commute to NYC where I began my career in advertising, rising to the level of Creative Director, Group Vice President, directing ad campaigns across the USA and abroad. After concluding stints as director of marketing and communications at several national nonprofits, I moved to Charleston in 2018 with my husband Howard, inspired by the beauty of the Lowcountry and attracted by the vibrant art community here.
I am always exploring different mediums and techniques in my art, and I've studied with pastelist Tammy Papa, abstract artist Tim Hussey, and mixed media artist Paul Christina since moving to Charleston. I am delighted to have found a wonderful home for my work as one of nine artist-owners of Lowcountry Artists Gallery.  Creating art has been a lifelong passion for me, and I am excited to continue the journey here in South Carolina.
