Born in Lincoln, Francesca declared she wanted to work in animation from an early age and has been aiming towards it ever since. She graduated with a BA in animation from the University of Creative Arts, Farnham, before applying to the NFTS in order to develop her storytelling skills and to collaborate with others. During her first year, she gained experience working in a number of different styles and techniques.
Francesca loves to create and develop characters and is often drawn to the darker side of comedy. She always has some new character or story idea in development and hopes to be able to entertain large audiences and eventually work on a feature animation.
