My name is Fran Larcombe, I am a self taught artist and illustrator based in Cornwall, specialising in animal and human portraiture. I draw in pencils, inks, pastels and coloured pencils; paint in oils, acrylics and inks.
I was born in London in the 'swinging sixties', I suppose my love of art was apparent right from the start and my parents always encouraged me. I was happiest sitting on my own quietly drawing!
After an extremely nasty health scare, I decided to take a leap and become a full time artist. I work from my home studio producing commissions, illustrations and a range of interesting illustrated, up-cycled projects.
My wonderful, long suffering family still encourage and support me in every new adventure.
