“Every single thing about her workshop was valuable. It left me feeling empowered and ready to tackle my creative endeavors.” – Julia Boyles (Artist)

“…the most productive, efficient and inspiring workshop ever. Fran has been in our shoes, she understands challenges. She gives you a structure and a master plan. I left really energized and armed with real funding resources. There are a lot of residencies out there or opportunities to show work as a showcase but there are not that many skilled professionals who take the time to equip you with just the right tools to feel ready to leap into producing your work. To that end, Fran is really a gem in the industry. ” – Caroline Brethenoux (Artist)

“Fran has such a wonderful way of taking things that normally seem very daunting and making them do-able and that is a true gift!”
-Jessica Myers (Artist)
