Franzeska Ewart's headshot

I wrote for children for 30 years, and in 2012 I was shortlisted for a Scottish Children's Book Award. I then wrote my adult debut The Faraway, which is about a woman's quest to become an artist. During the process of writing I travelled to Isla Graciosa, off the coast of Lanzarote, and researched and painted there.

Now I'm working full time as an artist, and my paintings have a strong narrative content. Most also have poems attached to them. I'm particularky keen to talk to people about the links between writing and the visual arts. (Photo credit: Diana Finn)
