Francesca is a genius with materials and has an eye for detail like no other. I have worked with her for more than ten years to execute on complex and high-end projects for galas and events, and her ability to make magic out of even the most humble ideas and concepts is impressive. She is my go-to for design projects, decor, and wearable art. You will never be disappointed by her attention and creative abilities!

Masquerade is a chance to celebrate play, a facet of life pushed aside by all our busyness. Ornate, miniature and fanciful canvas for the face that can temporarily shift perspective and transform ourselves.

My interest lies within the interaction of color, shape and dichotomy of materials. A conversation occurs where one element ends and the other begins that can be heard if one takes time and pause see what truly is. 

Taking pause in todays hectic world is not a luxury but a necessary respite to process the fast pace that we have created for ourselves. 

I look forward to working with you to make something wonderfully unexpected and unique.
