Lucy Victoria Francis

Illustrator / Surface Pattern Designer

introduction

Inspired by the natural world, I love to draw and design! I make original artworks as well as designs for fabrics, homewares and products.

Recently graduated from the University of Westminster with BA First Class Honours in Illustration & Visual Communication. I am a freelance Illustrator and Surface Pattern Designer; focusing on hand drawn illustration as original artworks which can be transposed onto textile surface designs and decorative print. Presently my work centralises around wildlife conservation and ornithology, taking inspiration and a strong interest in natural history illustration. The purpose of my works is to reflect the beauty within nature and wildlife, incorporating my love for drawing, decoration and patterns. The natural world is explored through my detailed hand produced drawings and digital work to create patterns and designs. Email: lucyvictoriafrancis@gmail.com Website: www.lucyvictoriafrancis.com
