"We have worked with Frances on two films now and this year, we hope, will mark our third collaboration. On set and in real life she is confident, insightful, welcoming and kind. Her intelligence, expertise and passion for her art mean that she is a unique talent and our films would not look or feel the way they do without her."

"Frances has worked with me as my assistant on a number of different jobs now, including long term film work and commercial jobs. Her professional working attitude and passion for her vocation is why I will continue to work with her. She brings so much enthusiasm to every job she does and her work is always finished to an incredibly high standard. She can provide all aspects of makeup from gruesome special effects to high fashion looks and I look forward to working with her on many projects to come!"
Harriet Rogers, make-up designer for Apocalypse & Spymasters
"Frances has worked as a returning make-up artist on my Nativity! movie franchise and each time she has brought her calm presence, her kind nature and her professional flair.  The Nativity movies are extremely hectic shoots and Frances has often had to work in challenging conditions with a large number of actors including children.   Her work is always imaginative and authentic.  Frances is brilliant under pressure and can produce wonderful work with lightening speed.  I would recommend Frances to any production as she is a huge asset to the whole team."
-Debbie Isitt, BAFTA winning screenwriter & Director of the Nativity! franchise


"Frances worked as hair and make-up artist on my short film Terry and Brenda. She was a pleasure to work with, very professional and produced great results in a short amount of time. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her for any job, especially if you need someone who is skilled in various aspects of make-up from beauty to prosthetics. Her passion and positivity for what she does shines through in her work."

Jamie Hooper, director & writer of Terry & Brenda


"I've been fortunate enough to work with Frances many times now, both as an actress and producer and can safely say she's an absolute delight to collaborate with. Her talents combined with passion and a quiet confidence she possesses makes her a joy to have on set. Frances not only brings a vast amount of technical skill onto a project but with a kind heart and calming disposition she has a wonderful ability to make everyone she's working with feel at ease."

"Frances is always my first choice when looking for a make up artist, she’s reliable, skilled, very focused and also great fun to have around. She has worked on multiple films I’ve directed and everyone on the crew always has positive things to say about her. She takes great care with her work and will always give you fantastic results, even under time constraints. I hope we will work together again in the future."
