Through the medium of embroidery, Francesca transforms pre-existing found images adding new perspectives, stories and interpretations. Combining the classic with the unexpected, she engages in a dialogue between past and present, adding a contemporary twist.
She explores the intersections of what is considered art, design and craft through a medium that has traditionally been perceived as feminine, drawing upon her background in textiles and women’s history, as well as her love of books, literature, colour palettes and patterns.
