Notes


About 

Fran Giffard has long been captivated by the intricate beauty of natural illustrations, and has produced an incredible body of ornithology-inspired artwork. Fran works directly onto her personal Moleskine diaries using watercolour, ink, gouache and graphite pencil, capturing the wonder of exotic and more commonplace birds. The result is a vivid collection of work with an intriguing personal slant.

Statement about AOAP Submitted Artworks 
These pieces are based on my Grandfather's stamp collection. His tropical stamps, mostly of fish, featured a lovely intimate and detailed painting of an animal, against a solid, flat colour background. I decided to use this combination, but with my own paintings of birds.

You must not reproduce, duplicate, copy, sell, resell or exploit any works. In doing so, you endanger our relationships with artists, and directly jeopardise the charitable work we do. Anyone found doing so will be subject to legal action.
