Fran Giffard

Camberwell College of Arts (BA (Hons) Drawing , 2010)

Fran Giffard draws directly onto her personal Moleskine diary pages using watercolour, gouache, and graphite pencil to capture the wonder of exotic and more commonplace birds. The result is a vivid collection of work with an intriguing personal slant. Fran studied Fine Art Drawing at Camberwell College of Art, graduating in 2010. Since then she has exhibited internationally, as well as throughout the UK. She has had a number of solo exhibitions, most notably:

     All My Beautiful Boys, Northcote Gallery Chelsea, 2015.

     A Myriad of Birds, Masterworks Museum of Art, Bermuda, 2014.

     A Parliament of Drawings, Northcote Gallery Chelsea, 2013.

     Foyles Book Shop, Charing Cross, 2012.

     O for Ornithology, Mayfair, 2012.

In 2014, Fran travelled to Bermuda for a three month artist residency. While there she studied the birds of Bermuda, while documenting her time in her Moleskine diary. Fran was also shortlisted for The Threadneedle Art Prize is 2016 and 2011, BBC Wildlife Artist of the Year and David Shepherd Wildlife Artist of the Year. She also won a place to exhibit with the Society for Wildlife Artists in 2013.

Fran lives and works in London.
