I'm Fran

… a Maltese illustrator and designer, currently based in Edinburgh.

I graduated from the University of Malta in 2017 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts Honours Degree in Digital Arts and am currently reading for an MA in Illustration at the Edinburgh College of Art. I have illustrated 3 children’s books (and have some exciting projects coming up!) and also formed part of solo and group exhibitions.

I have a fondness for whimsical fairytales and stories, which are the main inspiration behind my work. My central focus lies in the development and exploration of characters and imagined worlds, through the use of digital, traditional (particularly ink) and sculptural tools and media.

I enjoy spending time with my four-legged furry friends and observing everyday-life, which very often fuels my creations.

Send me an email for more information on commissions and any enquiries, I’d love to hear from you!
