Frances creates art and gilded glassware from her studio little blue hut in Hanwell, West London.
Painting and drawing in oils, watercolour, pastels and mixed media, she is inspired by our country’s seascapes and broad landscapes, especially those of Dorset and of Suffolk.
The old fishing boats resting on shingle beaches; the weathered colours, blues and pinks, lichen and rust against the wide, dramatic, ever changing cloud-filled skies.
Also the rich greenery of Hanwell and areas surrounding her home, the canals and the River Thames are themes in her work.
“I aim to reflect nature’s colours in realism and impression. How it speaks to us of the past and how strongly it affects our lives in every way,” she says.
As a singer, her Art and Music are closely combined in expression and artistic fulfilment.
Frances Scott is happy to work to commission in any medium.
