I am Frances Daunt an animal artist from Derbyshire (near Matlock). I work in a variety of media, from pastel/mixed media art (a lot of which is now in private collections all over the world) to my award-winning felted work, which has been exhibited nationally.
I believe that my love for animals shines through in my work, from a close up of a tiger’s face to a portrait of a beloved pet I work hard to capture the spirit and energy of the animal.

I donate work to various charities throughout the year. In 2018 I worked with Explorers Against Extinction and The American Association of Zookeepers to help raise much needed funds for habitat protection for some of our most vulnerable wild animals.
I exhibit in various shows across the UK - if you would like to see if I will be attending a show or exhibition in your area please check out my Shows and Exhibitions page.
