About Frances Ball

Frances Ball

.

Hi!....my name is Frances Ball. I am a printmaker and jewellery designer based in Sheffield.

I use linocut for my prints, which I find both challenging and exciting in equal measures, from working with the tools, carving the block, using the beautiful vibrant inks, through to the nail biting moment you peel away your print from the block.

Inspiration comes from my garden, the wonderful landscape of the Peak District, life and everything else in between!

Presently, I am drawn towards printing images which unite aspects of nature with the human form, in particular, figures that have a mythical feel and express something of the great resilience and innate beauty of the human condition.

My jewellery on the other hand is a little more playful. Allowing my hands and eyes free rein to explore colour, texture and form. I love creating these tiny intricate pieces that fit neatly in the palm of your hand, using buttons, beads, wool and whatever else happens to be lying around! This light approach aims to create pieces that are quirky, with a folksy feel and hopefully fun to wear.

I am also a registered nurse, so when I'm not beavering away in my studio, I am supporting patients and their families with the emotional fallout from cancer. This keeps my feet on the ground and makes me really appreciate how precious life is, which is something I hope to convey through my art work.

    I bought this for the birthday of a friend of mine and it arrived very promptly and carefully packaged. It is an absolutely beautiful piece of work and when I took it to the framers the owner of the shop who helped me find a frame also fell in love with it. It looks beautiful in its frame and my friend loves it. Stunning artwork and amazing value for money. Thank you.

    I am absolutely delighted with this piece, I bought it for myself and put it in a black matt frame, it absolutely pops, the pictures on the website don't quiet capture the brilliance of what this actually looks like. I'm mesmerised, there is a tranquility about it the beautiful being created from nature. I love it, you can tell this artist created from her heart. Loveliest piece in my home now. Parcel arrived within a 3 days packed with care.
