About the Artist

Frances Powell

Frances Edwina Powell (she/her) is an emerging artist and arts facilitator based in Meanjin (Brisbane), Australia. She explores the ideas of the body, relationships, performance and home, primarily working on paper. Frances often references figure drawing, abstract shapes and colour associations within her work. Working from her home studio, she crafts collages and illustrative oil paintings that explore form and concept. Her practice is often informed by material and process, letting her thoughts percolate as she engages with tangible materials. 

Frances studied a Bachelor of Fine Art (Studio) and Business (Marketing) at the Queensland College of Art, graduating in 2021. Currently, Frances works within the visual arts industry as a Co-Founder of a community-focused Life Drawing Studio, facilitating arts events and workshops.
