Francis is an artist and award-winning academic with over 20 years’ experience working in the creative industry. He started his career working in Hollywood on ‘Alien 3’, ‘Solar Crisis’ and ‘Tom and Jerry the Movie’ and moved on to Children’s Television in the UK (CITV’s ‘Wolves, Witches and Giants’ and BAFTA-nominated ‘Grizzly Tales for Gruesome Kids’). He works as a Senior Lecturer and Course Director in Illustration and Animation at Coventry University, contributing to cutting edge research and delivering papers all over the world. Francis believes that art should be inclusive and accessible. He also believes that everyone has a story inside them, so when he’s not creating his own, he’s helping other people to bring theirs to life or to find the stories that surround us.

For "Our Woods, Francis is running a session called: Free Seeing in Old King's Wood


In this session, Francis will introduce you to the world of ‘Free Seeing’ encouraging you to find beauty, mood and pattern in the most unexpected and often ordinary of places. Starting between the goal posts on the edge of Old King’s Wood, participants will have the opportunity to explore the familiar in unfamiliar ways, turning a woodland walk into an enhanced sensory experience. You may have looked, but did you really see?
