Fran Giffard

Bird Illustrator

A talented artist

Fran Giffard is a talented artist based in London. Not content to simply draw magnificent colourful pictures of birds, she also studies them in various London museums. Having graduated from the University of the Arts, London in 2010, she had already put on a good dozen solo exhibitions and participated in 40-odd group exhibitions. Her exhibitions feature a profusion of exotic and common or garden birds who seem to come to life as she sketches. She paints with watercolour and poster paint, as well as producing line drawings. Her work is incredibly life-like, produced on pages of her moleskin diary which doubles up as a canvas and her random notes. She draws inspirations from the bird collections at the Natural History Museum of London and the hundreds of species she watched on her travels to Bermuda, Réunion Island and Hong Kong.
