Studio Visit with Aileen Francis

Aileen Francis is a passionate artist, maker and art collector.  I've been an admirer of Aileen's work for some years now ever since I opened the gallery in 2014 and have been on the hunt for local artists.  Her style, medium and subject matter varies greatly from series to series and this new body of work is no different.  I caught up with Aileen at her home studio to find out more about her most recent body of work.

Studio Visit with Belinda Street

I’ve been drawing and painting since I could hold a pencil. As a small child I would sit for hours on my own just drawing, and well, I never really stopped!

Upon finishing that I also studied desktop publishing, and got a job as a graphic designer.
