Hi, I’m Frances

Arts and crafts have always been very important in my life. I studied art through school, with a particular leaning towards three-dimensional sculptures in ceramics and wood, as well as block printing. I have continued with pottery and drawing as a side activity for myself and encouraged my children with many and varied crafts and creative hobbies. I believe in the power of arts and crafts to form social connections and to foster wellbeing, which is much needed at this time. Therefore now, after a long and successful career in higher educational development, it is time for me to shift the focus to creative activities being at the centre of my world.

Why Deepwell Arts?

I have launched Deepwell Arts for those who want to develop their skills in artistic expression with a range of media, and for those who just want to experience the process of making. We are starting with creative workshops in a beautiful arts-and-crafts venue in Headington, and plan to develop and expand our activities over the coming months. 

The images on this page are taken from some of my mother’s many beautiful paintings. She is extremely modest but her calm nature and her art has been and will remain an inspiration to me forever.
