About me

 

Having recently graduated with a BA in Fine Art, Francesca has worked in close contact with artists from various backgrounds including photographers, writers, musicians, film directors and actors. Alongside developing her own practice as a visual artist and writer, Francesca has worked predominantly to promote the work of others through a number of projects. She has written art reviews for a number of international magazines and websites including Dots and Dashes, Official Theatre, The Plus, The Seventh Hex and RedD PR, and has written contributions for Time Out and Made in Shoreditch. Francesca is currently looking for freelance or fixed-term work, as well as potential collaborations with other creative people.
