The Gallery and Teaching Studio of Frances Sim Higgins.
Since graduating from the Quay School of Arts at UCOL, in Wanganui in 2005, Frances has been a working artist. Known for vibrant watercolour works of florals and moody landscapes featuring New Zealand scenes, her work can be found in collections around the world.
Frances was one of the founding owners of LeftBank Art Supplies, Wanganui's only professional art supplies store where her wealth of knowledge and willingness to share that knowledge made her an asset for professional and hobby artists in the region.
The sole owner of the store over the last several years, Frances has recently made the decision to concentrate solely on her own artistic endeavours. Hen & Hound Studios is her newest venture.
Hen & Hound Studio will be the home to workshop events, run by Frances and selected local artists. Future workshops will include watercolours, pastels, acrylics and oils.
The delightful Daisy Dachshund will be a fixture at the studio too!
