About Frances Simpson

Frances works in Mixed Media, Watercolour and Acrylics from her studio in Naivasha, Kenya. A Kenyan born Artist, Frances has had many solo shows in Nairobi and the UK and her paintings are in many private collections worldwide. She uses natural material such as sand, charcoal, dust, elephant dung and earth colours of Africa with the bright oranges, reds and magentas of tribal fabrics in her paintings on canvas and paper. Painting on location in the Kenyan bush, and inspiring other artists to use the natural earth materials and colours in their real life experiences on Safari are her passion: “through sketching and painting and quiet observation you see the wild animals of Africa more clearly and enter into their magical world, and this process is life-changing.” Keeping sketchbooks to distil memories of African journeys are a speciality of Frances’s work, and she has had many happy experiences holding Workshops to encourage many students to do the same, at any level of artistic experience.
