I am skilled in illustration, my favorite mediums are pencils, charcoals and pastels. I also enjoy watercolor and oil paints. I enjoy portraits and animals, but I can draw from life or from study pieces. I love abstract, however it is not my strength, yet, I have lately been coming out of my comfort zone. Most of my completed work in the past has been given away, I just recently started selling my work. I have studied art, and art history since grammar school. I attended American Academy of Art in Chicago, IL as well as Nashville State Community college where art illustration was my major. I have a God given talent and passion for art and I have been drawing since I was a child. I look forward to producing and creating expressive imagery for the remainder of my life!

Fran Thornton Details Date of birth: 24/11/1983 Address: 19 Sidney Street, Grantham, NG31 9BQ Email: franthornton1@hotmail.com Contact: 07794 354 021 Statement I am a hard working designer and illustrator who is technically pro?cient in classic draft techniques as well as having an excellent understanding of printmaking methods including screen print and etching. Since graduating I have worked as a design consultant gaining valuable commercial experience working on global projects for high profile clients such as Disney and P&O as well as smaller, local businesses at my current employment. I am a cheerful and approachable person who enjoys working as part of a team but am equally capable of working own my own. I am always eager to learn new skills and apply myself to my full potential. I am punctual, honest and reliable. Skills I have an excellent knowledge of Illustrator, Photoshop, Freehand and Indesign. Other programmes I have a basic knowledge of are Flash and Dreamweaver and am keen to learn more in order to further my personal and professional progress. Work Experience Print Bureau Ltd Feb 2011 - Present Head of Design I am responsible for all design and illustration work. Creating stationary and promotional material as well as fascias for local shops, bars and businesses. Projects Entire re working of Totemic’s staff training guide as well as presentation booklets and large-scale artworks to be placed in situ at their offices in England and Portugal including translation changes. This meant keeping in very close contact with project managers and owners to maintain the brand’s core ethics while including all the necessary information. Freelance UK Hair & Holistics June 10’ – Present Logos and packaging design for holistic therapy products and ongoing promotional work for the website. Freelance The Union Nov 10’ - present Ongoing artwork for sale at a well established Art & Design house. Lenco International Ltd Feb 09’ - June 10’ Design Consultant Whilst at Lenco it was my job to realise a client’s brief to an excellent standard. This included designing logos, complex diagrams, wayfinding material, shop and business fascias, posters, leaflets and illustrations. Projects I re-branded several shops restaurants and public areas on P&O cruise ships. I had to understand the client’s brief, analyse the target population and produce designs that were fit for purpose. I had to complete a number of large way-finding signs that had to be technically accurate and designed so they could be understood by people from many different countries and compliant with DDA legislation. The designs and signage I created were then constructed according to the details provided by me to the manufacturer. This taught me the importance of communication, not only from a business/ customer perspective but also from the creative consultancy to the manufacturing yard. I have also gained an excellent knowledge of guidelines put in place to account for legibility of signage and access for disability. During my time at Lenco any unusual projects or sales responses were assigned to me due to my creative ability. I enjoyed the challenge of brainstorming and coming up with ideas in order to win work and satisfy my clients. Education While at university I took full advantage of the facilities in order to gain maximum experience in all aspects of design, it was while I was in my final year at university that I was commended by Northern design for a competition entry. Lincoln University BA Hons: Illustration 2:1 grade Commendation from Northern Design (competition brief) Lincoln College of Fine Art and Design Foundation Course Pass Kings School, Grantham A-levels in both Art and English Literature 10 GCSE’s with grades A-C (including English and maths) Aspirations My intention for the immediate future is to be the best designer that I can be, and to learn as many techniques in order to be among the best in the ?eld. In the long run I intend to be well respected amongst my peers for the work that I have done and to be in demand for the work that I create and produce. To work my way up to the position of creative director at a well-respected design house would be ideal as I always wish to be surrounded by other creatives and be involved at the cutting edge of design.

I raised an eyebrow at my own reflection. Her tired eyes and dark circles matched perfectly with her crazy hair sticking up in every direction. I shrugged my shoulders and turned on my flat iron as my reflection mimicked my movements. She seemed to be more careless than I’d hoped. Her gestures were just so…slow and gloomy. I stopped what I was doing and stared into her eyes. I could see sadness within them. There was so much pain and fear, that I couldn’t believe she hadn’t exploded yet. I watched as her eyes started to glisten. A small tear escaped from the corner of her eye and journeyed to the bottom of her cheek. I raised my hand to feel the wetness as her opposite hand did the same. What was this? What did it mean? This single tear that broke along my fingertips carried so much frustration that it was scary to think about how much was left inside. She looked paler than usual…even a little sick. She tried to smile, but it was obvious there was no happiness behind it. Everything about her seemed fake. “What’s wrong?” I asked her. But I guess she could ask me the same. Either way, neither of us would have an answer. She was as oblivious to the situation as I was. I sat down feeling a bit woozy, remembering I hadn’t eaten much the day before. I leaned back and stared up at the ceiling, wondering if there was anyone staring back down at me. I wondered if we were alone in this…me and my reflection. She seemed to be the only one who could tell me how I was truly feeling. Only this time was different. We could see the effect, but we couldn’t find the cause.

I am a writer,and thiis what writting means to me: Writing is a unique expression of individuality. When reading someone’s writing you can see and understand their prospective. Every time I write I feel as if a piece of myself is incorporated in the articles that I write, my thoughts, language and feeling are all included; which are uniquely different from anyone else. Writing is rare expression tailored to an individual’s view on life. Andria Jones ________________________________________ SUMMARY Resourceful who consistently meets and exceeds productivity goals.
