"As someone with Dyslexia & ADHD, I particularly struggle with grammar and structure. Francesca was able to keep what I wanted to say and remain faithful to my ideas, whilst showing me how I could set my writing out & edit it in a way that made complete sense. She was professional and efficient when giving me notes and corrections. I couldn't recommend her more!"
"At a time when many commercial galleries are struggling, Francesca's imaginative & creative marketing has had a significant impact on our web presence. Her beautifully presented online catalogues have had a positive impact on online sales. Francesca is great to work with, reliable and commits to projects on time & on budget."
"Accurate and generous in her edits, Francesca has given my writing much needed clarity and depth. Her curiosity and critical eye has enabled me to recognise good writing and figure out how to improve the parts in need of attention. Her attention to detail and understanding of what makes writing work has enabled me to develop my prose style. It has been an edifying pleasure to work with Francesca."
Hello. I am a freelance arts writer and editor who works with individuals and corporate clients to develop their visual language.
For many years I have worked as the interface between art and the public. As writer, gallery guide and tutor, I am adept at transforming complex ideas and academic jargon into something both accessible and entertaining.
I trained at the Warburg Institute in London. This multi-disciplinary education in Renaissance art and culture has left me with excellent academic research and writing skills (as well as some pretty niche knowledge). I've since gone on to work in the auction and commercial sector, as well as in museums and with public sector ventures. I have edited work for individuals in a range of professions, from actresses to auto-biographers.
Let's talk. I have experience as a copywriter, editor and proofreader, as well as in picture research and valuation. I would be happy to consider your brief or project, whatever the size and style, whatever the subject.
