About the artist

Francesca Wilkinson-Shaw

Francesca lives and works in South Edinburgh. She trained at Chelsea School of Art, taught art for many years at St Margaret’s School and is a qualified art therapist, working in prisons, and on projects teaching disadvantaged children in Nairobi.

She creates vital and visually outstanding abstract paintings. Her work plays with different planes and depths, exploring the flicker between two states. Often kaleidoscope-like, the paintings explore ambivalence and complexity, randomness and control.
