Fry, Frances - Other/Unknown


 

Frances Fry was a leading wildlife artist and illustrator, well known for her works published as greetings cards (Medici Society) and calendars. She also wrote and illustrated ?The Colour Guide to British Birds and Their Eggs? (Nimrod Press 1990( and provided illustrations for Cyril Roger?s ?The World of Zebra Finches (Nimrod Press 1986), Watmough?s ?The Cult of the Budgerigar? (Triplegate 1983), Frank Finn?s ?Fancy Waterfoul? (Nimrod Press 1985). Additionally she wrote various articles on nature and animals as well as the ?Country Diary? column for the ?The West Somerset Gazette?. She lived in the West Country and was fond of rambling across the wild and beautiful country side of Exmoor which provided boundless inspiration for her paintings. A keen animal lover and conservationist, she had a wildlife orientated garden long before such things became fashionable, because there was never enough time to keep it neat and tidy. Despite this admission she listed gardening as one of her hobbies, together with photography and listening to classical music. For her, bird and animal watching proved work and pleasure combined.
