Frances has built a life around nature and adventure, and it's working out quite nicely. Born to Costa Rican and Australian parents, she spent a whole lot of time on road trips in her youth. Nowadays, those trips often involve outdoor adventuring in and around the San Francisco Bay Area; camping, hiking and inspiration-gathering. As a result, her cheerful prints evoke feelings of nostalgia, nature, mystery and, yes, adventure. She gathers ideas in the bath and hammock, and puts pen to paper in her studio, home or beautiful backyard. There, she says, time fades away while she creates.
