Following 15 years working in education, as an art teacher in London secondary schools, and as an Inner London Local Authority advisory teacher and study support consultant, Frances moved to Cornwall in 2011 to study for a Masters in Fine Art: Contemporary Pratice at Falmouth University.

After gaining a distinction and being named as joint winner of Falmouth University's 2013 Sandra Blow award, Frances has developed an artistic practice focused on digital video installation, with an active involvement in artist-led activity in Cornwall, primarily with CMR Gallery & Project Space in Redruth.
