Fran Godwood


I am inspired by local gardens and old buildings, working mainly in pen and watercolour. I use a dip pen to pick out the textures of trees and the contrasting shapes of flowers and leaves, and then add watercolour. I also enjoy sketching chickens and geese going about their business.
I trained in Graphic Design at St. Martin’s but nowadays I concentrate on creating original paintings. Several of my pictures have been taken abroad as memories of the English countryside.
I was selected to join the Society of East Anglian Watercolourists in 2018. I also exhibit regularly with the Cambridge Drawing Society and Cambridge Open Studios.
Since gaining the Curwen certificate in printmaking in 2017, I now create hand-coloured lino cuts as well as paintings.
