About The Artist

Francesca Apicella is a self-taught artist living in West Sussex, UK.

Inspired by strong feminine attributes, she creates classic portraiture with symbolic, geometric and natural elements.

Her work tends towards mixed-media paintings, composed of both oil and acrylic, among others.

Ultra-smooth wooden and metal panels are the chosen "canvas" for these art pieces, adding to the mystical, humanesque-like quality of the finished portrait. With the final piece uninterrupted by brush strokes and texture, this allows the artist to add minute details and a surreal-like finish that would have otherwise been unachievable.

Francesca has a background in 3D animation and studied Software Development for Animation, Games and Effects at the NCCA at Bournemouth University. This technical background has inspired some of the more mathematical and algorithmic elements of her work, whilst simultaneously incorporating classic portraiture techniques.

Francesca's Art Journey

Francesca was inspired to practice art after a long battle with chronic illness.

She was left completely bed-bound for 5 years and had to rely on others for everything. After various treatments failed, she turned to alternative therapies. One alternative medical practitioner advised her to return to one of her earliest passions, art.

What started as an uphill battle due to such severe allergies that required Francesca to paint wearing both a mask and gloves, turned into a beautiful escape into a world that was completely her own. Her first piece "Philautia", from the Greek meaning self-love, started off this adventure. The idea that physically creating something beautiful would help her appreciate being trapped in a body that didn't work properly. It was this piece that cemented the revelation that Francesca wanted to practice art professionally.

Each piece is a mirror of her journey, from "Serpentina", inspired from the ideas about progression and change, to "Aeonia, inspired by the ageless themes of infinite time and total freedom.

About The Artist

I am a French artist based in Worthing, West Sussex.

I draw the inner life – the invisible world of dreams, feelings and inner experiences. Some of my images come to me in dreams and others appear in waking life. My artwork is about inner listening and perceiving and giving form to fleeting images, which seem to belong to the life of a mysterious, invisible reality which I cannot express with ordinary language. My art images tell the story of my inner journey and for me, form a bridge between the inner world and the outer world.

I use watercolour pencils, soft pastels and ink to give form to the ‘unseen‘ and occasionally clay. Since Summer 2012, I have been using new media for my art and images: Sea shells and small pebbles, which I collect from Worthing beach and the banks of the River Adur in Shoreham-by-Sea.

If you have any questions about the images displayed in the galleries or would like more information about the artwork for sale or about my work in general, please contact me.

Art Group / Exhibitions

My painted shells and some of my small framed pictures are displayed at the Shoreham Gallery and at Inspired by the Sea shop (near Worthing Pier) all year round. I regularly take part in local exhibitions and arts events. You can find details of current and future arts events on my Website.

About The Artist

I am a Russian-born multi-media artist based in East Sussex.

From an early age, I was exposed to art culture and studied fine art in musical school back in my home town in Russia at the age of 8 - 9, before moving to England.

Intuitively, I was always drawn to art and decided to take fine art in school at GSCE, passing with an A* grade to further my learning.  At this moment, I couldn’t find my voice in art and began exploring other mediums such as graphic design, clay making, photography and much more.

That period helped me form my understanding and relationship with art as a whole, creating confidence and voice, helping me use paint as my own language to speak to the inner and outer world.
