The work of Frances Ackland-Snow is inspired from her memories of landscapes and places that have moved her emotionally. Iintrigued by the elements, particularly the ever-changing English skies, she explores those fleeting moments that overwhelm and touch you when the light breaks through the clouds.
She uses vigorous brush strokes which convey the power and passion she feels towards her paintings. She uses multiple layers and textures with her paints creating a rich colour palette. She uses anything ranging from traditional oils to spray paints to nail varnish as long as it offers the colour and/or the texture she is aiming for.
