I am an illustrator, photographer, art director and journalist based in London. I love travelling, food and gardening. Most of my work is done from life; I like to work very quickly with pen, ink and a mini-paintbox. Here are a few pages from my travel sketchbooks and samples from books I have illustrated. I hope you enjoy my site. If you would like me to illustrate a book, magazine feature, menu or brochure, please contact me at francine.lawrence@btinternet.com
