Frances Watts Illustration

Last night we came across a blog post by the incredibly talented illustrator, Frances Watts.  So impressed with what we saw we went straight onto her fab and very unusual website and was not disappointed!  What set her apart for so many other illustrators was her subject matter, which quite frankly is right up our street.

Take a look for yourself……..

Our favourite, of course have to be the beetles, but we’re pretty partial the the ‘Be kind to Bees’ too.

Frances, (not to be confused with the Australian Children’s Book Illustrator) or Franny to her friends lives in deepest Somerset with her photographer husband (also not to be confused with the wildlife photographer with the same name), her little son and lovable hound which is obviously where she gets much of her inspiration.  However, she is happy to take commissions too.

Check out her website and latest blog post for more examples of her work, ways to contact her and the chance to buy one off prints. We’re busy trying to think of an excuse for a party (not such a difficult task) for her to design an invitation for us!
