a spot of trumpet blowing and shameless self promotion......

In studios,castles, jungles, obscure islands, hanging out of aeroplanes and even underwater Frances conjures up an enchanted world of her own to create and tell the story she is working on....
Tall tales and surreal stories are the air she breathes.....
making possible the impossible and by anthropomorphizing all "heroes" from a little red
city scooter snuggling a Paris Metro railing, to a Gucci bikini thrown carelessly in a lagoon...

Currently Frances is exhibiting in 2 galleries
one show entitled "punti di vista" Rome ITALY at the Vista gallery ...
and "times of transformation" Albuquerque New Mexico USA at Arthaus66.....
and she has also been invited to show in October 2009 at the "TRIENNALE" in Milano Italy, with the worlds leading female photographers and the "Soqquadro Foundation" Rome Italy
