Limited Edition hand pulled screen print (8)
45 x 35cm
Frankie strives to capture a particular memory or characteristic from original photography.
She adapts a photograph using hand screen-printing techniques to produce distinct and original works of art. The aim is to create prints that appear simple and uncluttered in order to allow the personality of the image to shine.
After gaining a Textile Science and Design degree at Huddersfield University, she went on to Winchester School of Art to graduate with an MA in Textile design and worked as a commercial textile designer for a well known homes furnishing studio. In recent years she has concentrated on freelancing and has rediscovered her passion for screen printing.
Once a photograph has been chosen, the image goes through a number of stages before completion. First, the photograph is stripped back to a line drawing. The new image is reconstructed with this template, by building up with layers of colour. This is achieved by combining two screen-printing techniques of layering hand cut stencils with the photographic line drawing. Each colour is individually screen-printed one at a time in acrylic media onto quality paper.
These prints are inspired by travel, nature or just things that make her smile. She is rarely found without her camera and loves to see the transformation of images to individual art works, challenging herself to capture that particular moment in time. The prints are unique as each print run is limited, with between 8 to 12 hand screen-prints per series.
It is also possible to commission Frankie to create a screenprint from one of your images.
