Frances Daunt



Frances Daunt is a self-taught animal artist living in Derbyshire




Frances Daunt is an award-winning animal artist living in Derbyshire. As an animal lover she is fascinated in the ‘soul’ or character of animals and this shines through in her work.

Frances keeps her work fresh by working in a variety of media. She mainly works in oils or acrylics but also loves pastels and coloured pencils, creating artwork which is held in private collections world-wide.

She finds that by using different media she is continually challenging herself and learning something new which helps keep her work fresh and interesting.

Frances is also well known for her ever popular and rather unique map art. These are mixed media pictures painted directly on to vintage maps and then dry mounted and framed.

Her newest body of work features underwater scenes in acrylics mostly on large canvases. The animals featured range from turtles to polar bears.
