Frances is an independent maker living and working on the Suffolk coast who is influenced by the natural world around her from the colour, shapes and patterns of the changing seasons to the delights of beachcombing. She also takes inspiration from miniature worlds, folk art and the enduring world of fairytale.
She is currently making small Keepsake figures based on the Victorian peg wooden dolls and the Grecon dolls house figures of the 1940’s. These are her own design, handmade and hand stitched by her. She uses offcuts and upcycled fabrics as well as her own hand dyed material some of which is dyed naturally.
These delightful highly collectable characters are beautifully made with lots of attention to detail. We have ballerinas and gardeners in stock as well as autumn figures and Christmas angels.
