Fran Giffard

Current Collection

Fran Giffard has long been captivated by the intricate beauty of natural illustrations and has amassed an incredible body of ornithology-inspired artwork. Fran started to work directly onto her personal Moleskine diaries using aquarelle, gouache and graphite pencil, capturing 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.

Fran was shortlisted for The Threadneedle Art Prize, BBC Wildlife Artist of the Year and David Shepherd Wildlife Artist of the Year.
